In March 2012 I delivered a talk at TEDxVillanovaU about The Future of Higher Education, in which I spoke about how online learning can bring about a democratization of higher education. Renee Knake of Michigan State has taken the idea further and applies it to legal education in her forthcoming article, Democratizing Legal Education. Elizabeth Chambliss talks about the article, here.
What do you think? It is possible to democratize information about law and legal systems? What are the barriers? Who will be the gatekeepers? What groups would want to see it happen and would they be willing to fund it?
