Are today's law school students being adequately prepared for their role in the twenty-first century? Inside Law School aims to provoke discussion on the future of legal education, particularly in relation to important topical issues, such as environmental degradation and women's rights, which are not yet part of mainstream legal education. Using easy-to-read parallel dialogues between two law professors and two law students to present his ideas and points of view, Lyon clearly shows the existence of two law school cultures, and lays the foundation for productive debate and reform. This book will be of interest not only to law professors and law students but also to practising lawyers, especially those governing the legal profession. Those outside the law profession who are discontent with our legal system and the role of lawyers in it will also find it captivating reading.
