Legal Rebels Invade Law School

The American Bar Association Journal has embarked on a cool new project that is anything but buttoned down. It’s called the Legal Rebels Project, and it’s designed to profile 50 innovators and the innovations that they’re undertaking to remake the legal profession in response to the economic meltdown. The project is using lots of social media tools, including YouTube, Twitter, Facebook, etc., along the way and, what’s really cool is that Lexington was one of their early stops. The Legal Rebels team visited the School of Law last week, interviewed Mary Natkin, assistant dean for clinical education and public service, and two third-year students and posted a profile on the Legal Rebels’ page. The posting includes the video interviews. You can a behind-the-scenes look at the visit on The Brief, the law school’s blog. The 3L curriculum continues to draw raves in the legal profession and is what undoubtedly brought the Legal Rebels to town. Here’s a link to the Legal Rebels post.
