Abstract
Following more than a year of analysis, the New York City Bar Association’s Task Force on New Lawyers in a Changing Profession today released a report recommending fundamental changes in education and career focus for new lawyers.
In its report, the Task Force—comprised of eight law school deans, the managing partners of law firms large and small, two of the City’s District Attorneys, the New York City Corporation Counsel, the leaders of The Legal Aid Society and Legal Services NYC, five general counsels of large companies, and career services professionals—urges a stronger effort to match the perceived oversupply of lawyers with the unmet legal needs of the middle class, identifies “impediments to innovation” in the legal industry, and announces the launch of four pilot programs to help prepare new lawyers for a changing legal landscape.
