As the Task Force begins its work, it wants to gather information, data, and a wide set of views related to its charge. Overall, the Task Force aims to understand (a) the principal cost drivers of legal education and costs might be contained; and (b) the key mechanisms used by students and law schools to cover those costs.
The Task Force’s first meeting will be Saturday and Sunday, August 9-10, during the ABA Annual Meeting in Boston, Massachusetts. The Task Force will hold public hearings both days, beginning at 9:00 a.m. at the Sheraton Boston, 39 Dalton Street. Saturday’s hearing will be held in the Republic Ballroom B on the 2nd level. Sunday’s hearing will be held in Public Garden on the 4th level.
If you wish to appear at these hearings to offer your views, raise questions, and make suggestions on the many and varied matters involved in the broad subject of financing legal education, a limited number of slots are still available. Please contact Barry Currier, Managing Director of Accreditation and Legal Education (email@example.com; 312.988.6744). We will do our best to accommodate your schedule.
You may also submit written comments to the Task Force. Comments may be emailed to Barry Currier: firstname.lastname@example.org.
