A group of students from some of the best law schools in the country sees power in numbers. About 50 students from premier schools met recently at Stanford Law School for Building a Better Legal Profession's National Conference of Student Leaders. BBLP's goal is to create collective action to prod large law firms to make changes in billable hour requirements, diversity and pro bono work. Their hope is that students and associates from the best schools won't accept jobs at firms that do not change their ways.
