Stanford Law School is featured in a U.S. News & World Report story about law schools adding more practical offerings to their curricula, especially in the area of business. Dean Larry Kramer is quoted:
"It's pretty clear that to be a successful lawyer today you need to know more than the content of the law and how to argue about it," says Larry Kramer, dean of the Stanford Law School.
In order to involve students in a more diversified curriculum that allows them to integrate their law classes with classes from other disciplines, the law school modified not only its calendar but also the students' ability to get credits.

Don’t underestimate the value of after-class review or overestimate the value of reading for class.
How you do on the final is much more important than how you answer a question in class.
