This Commentary suggests a solution to the problems with legal education which the author identifies. The author promotes patterning legal education on either the teaching method employed in the field of accounting or medicine. Each approach emphasizes a broader based legal education with more concentration on the practical learning experience. This Commentary culminates by offering a possible way to reform rather than replace the current system of training lawyers.
