Rob Rausch Participates in Focus Group on Legal Education and Professionalism

Rob Rausch was recently invited to participate in a “Focus Group on Legal Education and Professionalism”.  The discussion was jointly sponsored by the New York State Judicial Institute on Professionalism and the NYSBA Committee on Legal Education.  Members of this panel included practicing attorneys, members of the judiciary, academics, and administrators with the Board of Law Examiners.  The discussion included such topics as changes in law school curriculum, reforms to the Bar Exam, encouragement of programs for pro bono work and mentoring, and promotion of professionalism of attorneys. Similar focus groups are being held throughout the state, and the data and comments collected will be considered at a statewide Convocation this summer.
