ABSTRACT
The article presents several issues that confront legal education in the U.S. It mentions the inability of law schools to produce practice-ready lawyers as some claim that the curriculum practiced by the said schools fail to impart the skills that new lawyers should have. It also cites the ability of law schools to produce more lawyers than what the job market can absorb.
