Law firm residency and post-graduate employment
Intriguing venture by Arizona St. Law School.
Most commentary in the blogosphere looks at post-graduate experiments as bald-faced efforts to pad employment statistics. Makes more sense to me to look at these initiatives as creative efforts (albeit not always successful ones) to confront conditions of the job market and, moreover, to enhance professional training of new graduates. This is not to say that the ASU residency model is the answer, but kudos to the dean and the law school for thinking outside the box.
