Abstract

New York’s chief judge, Jonathan Lippman, is floating an idea that in one fell swoop would alter the structure of legal education in his state and enhance legal services for the poor. His Pro Bono Scholars proposal would allow law students to take the bar exam in February of their 3L year, on the condition that they spend the last semester of law school doing unpaid legal work for the poor. There are many hoops to jump through before the plan becomes reality in New York, but the innovative concept is one that Illinois should seriously consider too.
