The Legal Education Reform Bibliography

The Gould Law Library has put together a Legal Education Reform Bibliography, a comprehensive survey of literature and news regarding the current state of, as well as suggested and upcoming innovations in, legal education reform in the United States. Law journal articles, news articles, and other written pieces about this topic are all made available in one easy to use resource.

This project was undertaken at the request of our Dean Patricia Salkin, and it is currently compiled and maintained by our own Reference Librarian Laura Ross. It was originally presented by Dean Salkin, as co-chair, to the NYSBA Committee on Legal Education & Admission to the Bar, but it has since been made available to anyone interested in this topic via SSRN.

The bibliography was discussed and highlighted in several recent blog posts: A. Burchfield, Legal Education Reform Resources in One Place, CM Law Library Blog (Sept. 30th, 2014); Dan Filler, Interested In Reading About Legal Education Reform?, The Faculty Lounge Blog (Sept. 30, 2014); Scott Fruehwald, Legal Education Reform Bibliography, Legal Skills Prof Blog (Sept. 30, 2014); Kelly Maloney, Bibliography on Education Reform, Courtesy of Patricia Salkin, Best Practices for Legal Education Blog (Sept. 29, 2014); John Steele, Bibliography On Legal Education Reform, Legal Ethics Forum (Sept. 30, 2014). It has also made over ten SSRN Top 10 lists.

We encourage anyone with an interest in legal education reform to check out the bibliography on SSRN.
