Meeting the Needs for Legal Education in the South.
Pye, A. Kenneth
The purpose of this paper is to collect and analyze data related to the needs of the legal profession and the capacity of law schools to meet these needs in the southern states. The law schools in this southern region are educating more law students than at any time in history. But the need for legal services in the region and the large number of qualified people desiring to study law suggest two unmet needs in the south. Scarce facilities to study law will be better used by increasing part-time and summer legal courses. The sections of this document cover the supply of lawyers in the south, the demand of lawyers in the south, the law school resources of the region, changes in the profession, and conclusions. The appendix contains a technical note and statistical tables concerning the demand for lawyers. (Author/PG)
