Legal education is facing a “perfect storm” of challenges: declining applications and enrollment, emerging as an expense item rather than long-established profit center within the University, facing pressure to raise funds, improve job placement, and confronting the widespread belief that the core curriculum is no longer responsive to student/marketplace needs and must be overhauled with more emphasis placed on producing “practice ready” graduates.
Legalmosaic works with domestic and foreign law schools and educational institutions to address these issues, recognizing legacy considerations (tenured faculty, IT, entrenched culture that is “anti-vocational”, etc.) A “one size fits all” approach to working with legal educational institutions is eschewed as each institution has its unique challenges as well as opportunities. By forging partnerships with the private sector—both providers and consumers of legal services—Legalmosaic has been able to tap into market opportunities for several educational institutions. We have also worked with for-profit institutions intent upon delivering legal courses to their business programs as well as creating content for legal paraprofessional programs delivered in classroom settings as well as via web-enabled interactive courses, some with original content.
