“Indiana Law faculty recently voted to revise our 1L curriculum to make room for a new 4-credit Legal Professions course.”

Bill Henderson at the Empirical Legal Studies Blog: A 4-Credit 1L Course on the Legal Profession

This seems like a very, very good idea to me. Did any of us have even the inkling of a clue of what we were getting ourselves into?

The course itself appears to be an empirical approach to Professional Responsibility. The texts Henderson is using (mentioned in the comments) look like fascinating and would reward a little self-study – Jerry Van Hoy: Franchise Law Firms and the Transformation of Personal Legal Services, Sara Parikh and Bryant Garth, Philip Corboy and the Construction of the Plaintiffs’ Personal Injury Bar, Michael Kelley, The Lives of Lawyers, Lynn Mather, Divorce Lawyers at Work: Varieties of Professionalism in Practice, Stephen Daniels and Joanne Martin, Texas Plaintiffs’ Practice in the Age of Tort Reform: Survival of the Fittest — It’s Even More True Now (.pdf).
