The Profession and the Academy: Addressing Major Changes in Law Practice

Date(s) of Conference:

April 28, 2010

Location:

University of Maryland School of Law
500 West Baltimore Street
Baltimore, MD

Description:

In recent years, there have been profound changes at every level of practice. This symposium will bring together leading law professors, scholars, lawyers, and bar leaders to consider:

  • What have been the most significant changes in the legal profession in recent years?
  • Can we generalize about the impact these changes are having on the behavior of lawyers (including ethical behavior)?
  • How should law schools respond to these changes and their implications?

Participants will discuss wide-spread changes in very large law firms; changes in middle-size and small firms (including solo practices); the ways in which these changes are influencing the behavior, including ethical practices, of lawyers; and how law schools might respond to these changes in their curricula, programs, and initiatives.
