NY Times Op Ed on legal education

Another opinion piece on US legal education has been published in the New York Times. This one by Erwin Chemerinsky and Carrie Menkel-Meadow makes the argument that it is wrong to think of restricting the length of the law degree as suggested by some including Barack Obama. A good contribution to the debate.

This piece manages to mention Australian approaches in passing, though they misunderstand it.
