Second Year of Bloomberg Law’s Law School Innovation Program Honors 12 Finalists

Arlington, Virginia – Bloomberg Law today announced that it has named 12 finalists in its Law School Innovation Program, now in its second year. The program recognizes law schools and their faculty and staff that have implemented and led innovative programs into their curricula that advance new methodologies and approaches to student instruction, legal technology implementation and usage, experiential learning, and other facets of legal education.

This year, inspired by the upcoming NextGen Bar Exam, the program’s call for submissions asked schools to share innovations aimed at teaching students foundational lawyering skills. Innovations submitted for consideration were grouped into four categories: changing pedagogy, beyond the law, immersive experience, and career pathing.
