New Skills Courses at NYLS
« on: July 11, 2011, 08:24:15 PM »
From the Wall Street Journal at http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052702304793504576434074172649718.html:

"Looking to attract employers' attention, some law schools are throwing out decades of tradition by replacing textbook courses with classes that teach more practical skills."

"New York Law School hired 15 new faculty members over the past two years, many directly from the ranks of working lawyers, to teach skills in negotiation, counseling and fact investigation. The school says it normally hires one or two new faculty a year, and usually those focused on legal research."
