Abstract

It is maintained here that the development and improvement of the standards for the work undertaken for the basic law degree should be of first and primary consideration. Specifically, by making the law schools substantially stronger and more stable, by acquiring good, productive full-time faculties, by placing greater emphasis upon the realization of lawyer skills through legal education and the development of more effective teaching techniques, by maintaining up-to-date curricula, by phasing out part-time evening law school programs and completely disaccrediting the study of law through correspondence schools, by maintaining better research libraries, by setting higher admission standards for some of the less prominent schools and complete certification of law schools by the Association of American Law Schools, rather than the American Bar Association alone-the law schools would undoubtedly gain in strength and maturity and would consequently ensure for their graduates a professional recognition of the highest order.
