Lawyers Speak Up On Lawyer Training

Attorney-Coach Edward Poll surveyed attorneys who said that and found that unanimously lawyers thought new lawyers should have on- the-job training before they enter practice.  Nearly 60% said that firms over a certain size should be required to engage a pro rata number of graduates, whether they end up working for the firm or not. Other ideas: require that all who pas the bar exam serve an apprenticeship supervised by a bar member in good standing who would attest to the legal proficiencies of the new lawyer and recommend tot he stat bar that the apprenticeship be considered successfully concluded.  The third year could be an apprenticeship rather than taking any law school courses.
