Strategic Priorities: Priority 4

  • Foster a Culture of Innovation 

    We must foster a culture of innovation that places Capital Law School at the vanguard of legal education.

    In the coming years, law schools must evolve because the world is in a period of mind-boggling transition. The economy is changing. The job market is changing. The needs of the workplace are changing. Legal education must change, too.

    In recent years, Capital and other forward-thinking law schools have established clinical programs, internship and externship programs, and courses designed to provide practical skills every lawyer needs. Those skills include a grasp of basic business principles, negotiation, mediation, client interviewing, counseling, relationship building, team development, leadership and practice management techniques.
