What a great advice...Erwin knows exactly what to do


Cut the cost of legal education by either: (1) getting rid of the third year or (2) turning the third year into some sort of supervised internship, with tuition reduced or eliminated.

Everyone wants to aid public sector and government lawyers. Well one great way to do that would be to cut the cost of legal education so that law school students don't graduate with three figures of debt. Let's be honest; the third year of law school is pedagogically worthless. There are three reasons that we haven't eliminated it yet---doing so would threaten the jobs of professors, would diminish the prestige of the JD relative to the MBA, and would lower barriers to entry to the legal profession---and if we are honest with ourselves, we'll realize that none of these arguments are motivated by the desire to serve the public good.
