Follow up to Scheiber's TNR article

http://www.newrepublic.com/article/1139 ... -symposium

Figured I would ask people currently affected by the state of legal education what they think of some of these ideas. Some of them have been hashed out ad nauseum both on here and at places like ATL, but a few were new, at least to me. I particularly liked the final thought by the GC of Cisco with the paid internship. Not only does it eliminate a huge chunk of the cost of the third year of law school, but it also helps to create actual practical experience prior to leaving the nest.

Anyway, I'm nothing but an intrigued 0L nub, so what do y'all think?

Sorry, only one I saw was in Legal Employment where I shouldn't be posting. Plus I figured this is a somewhat separate discussion given that these seem to be responses to Scheiber's article, not the article itself. But the thread can go ahead and die and I'll hit the search function harder next time.
