Scott and Oscar discuss the future of legal education as we see the advent of online law schools.  The discussion revolves around an article calling for more online law schools to address the imbalance between the debt caused by law schools and the reality of the job market.  The hosts also discuss lawsuits brought against law schools by law students who can’t get jobs and blame the inflated job placement numbers posted by law schools that entice them to enroll. The show then focuses on how the important thing to take away from all of this is that the traditional law school model has to change. Law students need to know that there may not be high-paying jobs for them when they graduate and law schools need to prepare them for developing a practice, managing expectations, and how to actually practice law in the real world.
