After one week of saying what frustrated graduates have said for three or four years, Paul Campos gets an interview with the WSJ Law Blog.Congratulations. I'm glad that Leiter and Horwitz didn't have their panties needlessly in a bunch over this blog.
Well said all around. For all the bizarre critique that you receive about your writing style, I find it to be one of the best examples of writing and communication that I have ever read. Clear, direct, and to the point. I'm going to try to emulate it.
Well, here is one retired law professor who basically agrees with Professor Campos. I don’t like the name calling and high school level attacks of many of the commentators on his blog but the basic positions he takes are sound and that makes the blog important. I have been saying the same things for years but in private. It takes a lot of guts to come out in the open with these kinds of facts and opinions. I hope he continues with his work and I hope that other law professors in the country will come to his support with substantive support instead of personal attacks. This is not an effort to turn Tier One law schools into glorified trade schools, but rather an effort to make law study relevant to things lawyers actually do and more importantly will do in the future. We are in the midst of a profound technological revolution that is changing the very nature of law practice. We do not know where it lead us, but it is important that we make legal education reflect the reality of the future.
