New National Initiative Launched: “Educating Tomorrow’s Lawyers”

The Institute for the Advancement of the American Legal System (IAALS) at the University of Denver has launched a national initiative to change the way law schools educate students, called Educating Tomorrow’s Lawyers (ETL).

ETL will enable law schools in the United States to showcase innovative teaching methods and curricula designed to produce more practice-ready lawyers who can better meet the needs of an evolving profession. To do this, IAALS  has partnered with a consortium of law schools that are committed to innovation in legal education–including Stanford Law School.

The Educating Tomorrow’s Lawyers initiative is fully funded by IAALS, the consortium, and the University of Denver.

The new ETL website  is published here: http://educatingtomorrowslawyers.du
