It’s safe to say that right now, education has changed. In the 20th century, there were a wide range of changes to education, and the 21st century has only added more. It’s definitely exciting to see how these changes affect college students, especially those looking to move into a trusted and timeless profession – the law. Let’s take a look.
Education & Experience
To start with, law professionals and colleges are recognising the need for practical experience among law students. While graduates can go on to learn after college, when they take their first internship, getting experience while learning often reinforces the learning process.
Adaptations To Curriculum
It’s also important for classes to adapt. While many of the main topics will stay the same, as the market changes, it’s also important to ensure that the curriculum adapts and follows suit too.
Finally, there’s also the addition of online learning that has been added to the roster. Years ago, a student’s only option was to learn in school. But now, there are options to learn from home (or wherever) by joining an online classroom. This can make classes much more accessible around the country, and in fact the world too.
For more information on what’s changing in the law school classroom, just take a look at the infographic below.
