APRL Supports Law Student Division Regarding Law School Skills Training

On August 7, 2014, the APRL Board voted to support the Law Student Division’s pending Motion to Sever the consideration of Interpretation 305-2 in the Legal Education Section’s Resolution 103A. APRL recognizes the importance of experiential education as part of the law school curriculum, particularly in the current economic environment, and supports an ongoing, active debate on how best to integrate externships, both paid and unpaid, into the law school experience so that law students will be better prepared to provide legal services to members of the public upon graduation.
