Futures Task Force Charges 2018-2019

Futures Task Force

The 2018-19 charge to this Task Force is broad:  dream, plan, learn, discover, be challenged and excited about the future of legal education at Detroit Mercy Law.  So much is changing in legal education and the legal market generally. The ABA has increased the number of on-line credits JD students may take; on-line courses are just the beginning.  Jobs are changing and new jobs are coming into existence. Technology is ubiquitous but what does that mean for how we should be teaching and what our students need to learn?  What academic programs do we need to develop that will help us grow and modernize and make use of new technologies for learning?
