    From the period 2011 through 2015, the Working Group for Distance Learning in Legal Education, consisting of participants from 85 law schools, collaborated to develop a set of best practices and model standards for online legal education. This discussion group will examine, discuss and update the proposed model standards for online programs. Participants will also discuss how these standards might be deployed, and who might be responsible for applying the standards in either an advisory manner or as an accreditor. As time allows, the group will also discuss updating best practices and how schools best might propel their programs toward lofty goals.
