Given the high tuition costs and the struggle to find a job upon graduation, is a law school education still a good investment? Many critics nationwide have responded with a resounding “no!” Are you about to enter law school or are you considering applying? Don’t know what to say to people who doubt your decision? One major, controversial voice has continued to offer a strong defense of a legal education.
The Health Professions and Prelaw Center invites you to join the renowned legal expert Dean Lawrence Mitchell of Case Western Reserve University School of Law for PIZZA on February 5 as he speaks on “Law School in an Age of Anxiety.” Dean Lawrence Mitchell has spoken persuasively in the NY Times (his provocative op-ed “Law School Is Worth the Money” garnered much debate) and in other media across the country about why law school remains a solid investment. His comments have brought him a national following (and severe critics). IU is very fortunate indeed that Dean Mitchell has agreed to speak at our campus!
Dean Mitchell will bring his expertise to the discussion of HOW AND WHY TO PICK A LAW SCHOOL IN TODAY’S ECONOMY. Tough Q&A will follow. This is truly a unique opportunity. ALL STUDENTS SERIOUS ABOUT LAW SCHOOL SHOULD HEAR WHAT HE HAS TO SAY.
