ISBA leaders meet with law school deans

ISBA leaders met with law school deans Thursday at the Chicago Office to address the important issues raised in the Report and Recommendation of the Special Committee on the Impact of Current Law School Curriculum on the Future of the Practice of Law in Illinois.

Through this collaborative effort, the ISBA hopes to refine and expand the Report’s recommendations. The ultimate goal is to identify realistic ways that legal educators and the practicing bar can work together to ensure that future generations of Illinois lawyers are fully prepared to represent the interests of clients.

ISBA President Umberto Davi said, “The adoption of this Report is an important step as we strive to begin a discussion with Illinois’ law schools about improving the skills of those entering the practice of law.”

Attending the meeting were (from left): Northern Illinois University College of Law Interim Dean Mark W. Cordes, ISBA 3rd Vice President James F. McCluskey, ISBA YLD Chair Jerry Napleton, ISBA President-elect Vincent F. Cornelius, DePaul University College of Law Dean Jennifer Rosato Perea, ISBA President Davi, ISBA 2nd Vice President Russell W. Hartigan, John Marshall College of Law Dean John E. Corkery, Northwestern Pritzker School of Law Dean Daniel B. Rodriguez, Loyola University School of Law Dean of Academic Affairs Michael J. Kaufman and IITChicago-Kent College of Law Dean Harold J. Krent. Southern Illinois University School of Law Dean Cynthia Fountaine participated via phone conference.
