Student Practice Rules

Our DC colleagues are leading a charge to change student practice rules to afford additional practice-related experiences for law students.  Are other groups considering similar proposals?  http://bit.ly/HIWCnW

  1. This is a great topic for discussion here and elsewhere: doesn’t it lead ultimately to understanding what we mean by “the practice of law?” And how best to prepare our students to be effective, responsible, competent practitioners? To the extent that current student practice rules rely on the narrow view of “practice” as that involving court appearances and specific tasks associated primarily with litigation, they fall woefully short of adequately describing the current “practice of law.” Which means that they deprive law students meaningful opportunities to engage in many facets of law practice while they are still students. I would love to see proposals that folks are developing to expand or change student practice rules. Post them here!
