    New Realities in Law: A Response to President Obama’s ‘Two-Year J.D.’ Suggestion

    In a town hall-style meeting last week, President Obama said, “I believe that law schools would probably be wise to think about being two years instead of three years.” In the wake of the President’s comments, Brooklyn Law School hosted an important conversation about the new world of law, emphasizing new changes underway; the response from law schools, including “Brooklyn 2-3-4” and other innovations to enhance educational value; the most pressing needs among employers; and new opportunities for students entering the legal marketplace.
