I launched "Future Law School" Daily Blog on August 29th 2018. This blog is based on the Telegram channel with daily publications of the most interesting and useful information, ideas, articles and news from all over the world related to the successful (and not so) results of transformation of legal education.

WHY?

Today law schools all over the the world need leaders who have a clear understanding of the future of the legal profession and how to prepare current students for this future. Now clients of law firms expect lawyers to have a deep understanding of their business and the specifics of their activities, reduce time spent on business processes and speed up communication, out-of-the-box thinking and the use of technology.

A new understanding of how to provide legal services is being shaped. And this is a completely different set of skills than two or three years ago. Along with a change in approaches to justice and legal services, the system of legal education is also evolving. To meet the needs of law schools should train freshmen, preparing them today for the challenges and opportunities of 2023. It is not enough to be a keeper of knowledge - one must be a visionary, be able to hear, analyze and experiment with his students.

It is not enough to be just a threshold for a student to enter the law; you have to be a springboard with whom it would be interesting to cooperate with any law school, law firm, or legal community.

There is no time to wait for the leaders to sprout from the next generation.

Leaders need to be pumped today.
