Legal Market Change Leading to Law School Innovation
Daniel B. Rodriguez of Northwestern University Pritzker School of Law was featured in a recent American Lawyer article detailing the university’s initiative to invest in faculty and curriculum changes to prepare its students for the legal market.
“The best we can do for our students in preparing and mentoring them is to give them the skills they could use soon after graduation and into their early careers to be able to work in a multi-disciplinary way at the interface of law, business and technology,” said Dean Rodriguez.
Under the leadership of Dean Rodriguez, Northwestern has invested in well-known professors, partnered with a program to send students into nontraditional jobs in corporate legal departments, and aligned itself with New Law company executives.
