Michael Moffitt Profiled in the New York Times

Ok, maybe profiled is the wrong word, but at least our Indisputably colleague is quoted in the most recent NYT article on the difficulties facing legal education and the Task Force on the Future of Legal Education.  You can read the entire piece here, and his quotes are below.

At the University of Oregon, Michael Moffitt, the law school’s dean, has started clinics on nonprofit groups, environmental policy and probate mediation. He has also set up law courses for students in other parts of the university, which brings revenue to the law school.

“The problem is that we have been selling only one product,” Mr. Moffitt said. “But if you are getting a business degree, you need to know about contract law. City planners need to know about land-use law. So we at Oregon are educating not just J.D. students.

“Demand is through the roof,” he added. “I feel like I am living a business school case study.”
