    The post-2011 shift in the job market and student application pools forced law schools to explore other potential revenue sources and to examine ways to remain impactful within their communities. One of these routes includes offering certificate programs for practicing attorneys desiring specialization, and continuing education courses for non-lawyers working in a legal field. These new methods of teaching the law present challenges for busy faculty and administrators, and often require revamping and compartmentalization of traditional courses. The fact that these programs can be offered outside of the usual semester timeline, or solely through web-based services, can be both advantageous and challenging depending on how your school chooses to approach them. This session will provide guidance and tips on implementing specializations for lawyers and basic instructional programs for other professionals, whether via online technology or in-person. We will discuss the “stackable model,” under which schools may allow students to build their own educational path over time. These techniques permit law schools to become more integrated with various units on campus, and promotes their knowledge to a larger portion of the population.

    Business meeting will be held at program conclusion.
