Lots of questions have been raised lately about the value of a law school education, and whether law schools are providing the kind of training demanded by the marketplace. A strategy committee of NYU Law's board of directors considered these criticisms, as well as recent changes in law practice, and recently issued recommendations for enhancements to the Law School curriculum. Dean Richard Revesz and strategy committee chair Evan Chesler '75 announced a series of initiatives based on these recommendations, many of which are aimed at giving more focus to the 3L year. Joining them for a discussion were several of the individuals who will play a key role in carrying out the new programs.

Melody Barnes, Vice Provost for Global Student Leadership Initiatives, New York University; Former Assistant to President Barack Obama and Director of the White House Domestic Policy Council
Evan Chesler '75, NYU Law Trustee and Presiding Partner, Cravath, Swaine & Moore
