And theres a question of what would actually be cut from law schools curriculum. There are a number of courses, typically in the first or second year, that basically every law student takes. The list usually includes Civil Procedure, Torts, Contracts, Property, Legal Writing, Legal Research, and maybe Constitutional and/or Criminal Law. The ABA also requires an upper-level writing class and a class on professional responsibility. If you add that all up, theres still room in the first and second year for electives, typically, but cutting the third year would greatly reduce those slots, which can be used to specialize and gain expertise in a particular kind of law, to practice in law clinics, and so forth. That could be a concern at a time when critics argue that law schools are failing to provide adequate preparation for the actual practice of law. In the words of a widely cited Carnegie Foundation study on the topic, Law schools face an increasingly urgent need to bridge the gap between analytical and practical knowledge.

I just didnt know what because we never knew when he was coming home. Serviceman Surprises Son as a Belated Birthday Present A serious knee injury forced Kelly home from his deployment early, stationing him only four hours away from his family at Fort Polk. It was totally out of left field, said Danielle, 35, of Metairie, La. The doctor in Afghanistan sent him to Germany to get an MRI because he probably needed surgery, but then that doctor sent him home to Fort Polk. Tayla and her younger sister, Logan, 11, were aware their father had been injured and moved to Germany, but had no clue he had been moved again much closer to home. Seizing the perfect opportunity to surprise the girls, Kelly and Danielle decided to keep it a secret and worked with the school to arrange the perfect moment. The Dominican school body was just unbelievable, said Danielle.

Catania also points to deficiencies in occupational and parental involvement. Smarting from his weighted formula defeat, Catania spent the recess in a Rocky montage of education wonkery. He read up on public schools around the world (the differences between Singapore and Mumbai, Catania tells LL, are fascinating).
