In the next few days, the
ISBA will send to members an email containing survey information for the
national Foundations for Practice project. The study, a part of the national
Foundations for Practice project, is an ambitious effort to determine what law
graduates need in order to launch successful careers in the legal profession,
create models of legal education to better fulfill those needs and identify
tools legal employers can use to make better hiring decisions.
Tomorrow's Lawyers Initiative of the Institute for the Advancement of
the American Legal System at the University of Denver, is
conducting the study on the skills, characteristics and competencies that the
profession requires of new lawyers.
The views of ISBA members
are essential to this study. Members should watch their emails for a link to
the survey. Please complete the survey and contribute your expertise to this
For more information about
the project, visit the Educating Tomorrow's Lawyers website.
