The Unveiling of UCI Law School

 

It’s back to school and many law students face a new curriculum, the large workload and the hefty price of tuition. But University of California, Irvine School of Law stands out with a new agenda, creating a hands-on approach to law school, a concentration in public service and free tuition for their inaugural class through donations. Co-hosts Bob Ambrogi and J. Craig Williams welcome Dean Erwin Chemerinsky, Founding Dean and Distinguished Professor at UCI Law, to chat about his new venture, the new approach to law school, students and what lies ahead.

    Graduate from law school ready to practice the law? You are joking, aren’t you? None of these graduates are ready to practice law after graduating from law school.
    This is why there are so many hundreds of cases in court that should never have been brought in the first place.

    For example, apart from certain specialist commercial law areas, they need to know something about all of law. Most do not. They have rote learned their stuff and cannot think outside the box.

    Even among attorneys, many ‘boast’ that they had failed or nearly failed their accounting exams! How dreadful. Some attorneys who practice family law have no sound numerical skills. Imagine a divorce lawyer with no numerical skills! Yet most have no such skills. E-documents! Don’t make me laugh! They wouldn’t have a clue in hell…sorry, really!!
