Senior lawyers from all over the U.S. who have been honored by the Best Lawyers of America ratings organization gathered last week at a conference marking the group's 25th anniversary. Law school deans who made up a panel discussing the future of legal education agreed with lawyers in the audience that law schools must retool legal education, but said that exactly how to do so is still unclear. Meanwhile, another panel discussed the sources of attorneys' general frustration with where the profession is headed.
