    Many law schools today are more entrepreneurial than ever before. Executive, non-degree, certificate, and online programs dot the landscape, in addition to the requisite (and traditional) legal curricula. These “newer” educational models fulfill several needs. They provide opportunities for specialization in substantive areas of the law, educate students who have neither the time nor the funding to undertake a degree-granting program, bring content to distance learners, and provide professional development both to attorneys and non-lawyers working in a legal field. Successfully launching and managing such programs presents its own set of challenges, as well as potential benefits, and additional revenue. This session will explore emerging trends in executive education, non-degree, certificate and online programs and provide guidance for colleagues considering programming in these areas.
    The Section held a virtual business meeting prior to the Annual Meeting.
