It’s about that time of year again where law students brush off the summer days and head back to school. In this very special “Back to School” edition of Lawyer2Lawyer, co-host and attorney, Craig Williams, chats with law students Daren Gottlieb from Western State College of Law in Fullerton, California and Han Fang from New England Law Boston, about why they chose law school, top concerns, personal goals, jobs, competition and next steps after graduation.
In his new book, Failing Law Schools, Washington University Law Professor Brian Tamanaha claims the American law school system is broken. He blames many institutional practices including skyrocketing tuition, bloated faculties, and unnecessary school rankings. But is this a fair critique? Lawyer2Lawyer co-hosts and attorneys, Craig Williams and Bob Ambrogi, examine these issues and more with Professor Tamanaha and Dean Susan Poser from the University of Nebraska College of Law.
