Even the top schools are making moves to make their respective curricula more practical nowadays. Classes like Nation Building: International Human Rights in Transitional Societies, Law & Econ Development: India, and Uncensored Hist of Int'l Law (which are all real) sound like bullshit undergrad political science classes and don't have any business in a law school curriculum imo.
I think actually practical things like practicums, clinics, and externship credit are great. But I don't see much evidence that TTT's do much of it.
I agree for the most part, but I think it really depends on how you define the term TTT and which "TTT" you are referring to. I feel like most clinics, externships, and practicums are very impractical at just about every law school, but more so at top schools. How is a Guantanamo Defense Clinic going to give me valuable experience that I can bring to my first job? Law schools have been making changes
across the board, but who knows whether or not this will make any difference?
