The Law Deans: Margaret Raymond, University of Wisconsin Law School
Adam Banner - Saturday, September 30, 2017

The University of Wisconsin Law School in Madison calls its hallmark approach to legal education "law in action." According to Dean Margaret Raymond, "law in action" refers to a focus on the way law affects people and their communities. That may mean applying legal education to real-world scenarios, it may mean an experiential approach to legal education, or it may mean a consideration for how to apply the rule of law in counseling an individual client. In other words, "law in action" goes beyond learning the rules of the legal profession and extends to practical application and consideration of the unique effects of law on individuals and on society as a whole. Read More
