Legal Education Accreditation: The Crosswalk of Three Accreditors

California law schools can now be accredited three ways: by WSCUC, by the ABA, by the California Bar Association. While the requirements are all a bit different, all three are moving to emphasize experiential legal education and outcomes-based education in an effort to create more practice-ready new lawyers. This Sector Connected begins with a description of this new focus; the facilitated group discussion will focus on how all three accreditors could create a more consistent accreditation experience to everyone's benefit.
