Symposium

Self-directedness (or ownership or initiative) will be a key competency for law school graduates seeking to find success in legal practice. How can law schools do more to foster self-directedness (or stop doing things that discourage self-directedness!)? How can law schools assess the extent to which students are becoming more self-directed? This presentation will discuss a progressive approach to fostering greater self-directedness in law students and provide some insights on ways of assessing self-directedness.

Presenters:

Jerry Organ, Bakken Professor of Law and Co-Director of the Holloran Center for Ethical Leadership in the Professions, University of St. Thomas School of Law Kendall Kerew, Associate Clinical Professor of Law and Director of Externship Programs, Georgia State University College of Law
