Strategic Priorities: Priority 3

  • Increased Market-Readiness 

    We must increase the market-readiness of our graduates by ensuring Capital Law alumni have the skills that make them assets to their prospective employers from the first day on the job.

    Traditionally, a legal education has been built on a foundation of imparting knowledge of the law through rigorous scholarship. That remains vitally important, but is not sufficient to ensure success in the real world. We need to produce graduates who are both book smart and job ready. Today, we must adapt our curriculum to ensure a law school degree also encompasses an ability to apply scholarship from the classroom to real situations in real jobs in the real world.
