In a recent report on legal education, the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching observes that many law schools in the United States neglect to teach the practical side of being an attorney. One exception is CUNY Law School. The Carnegie report cited the school's innovative curriculum that integrates professional skills development with legal theory as key to its success.
Michelle Anderson, the fourth Dean of CUNY Law School, discusses the law school's nationally recognized clinics, including the battered women’s and elder law clinics, and how they serve the school's committed public interest law students.
