This piece, written for a symposium celebrating Rick Matasar’s scholarship, charts a course for law schools over the coming years. In particular, it suggests that law schools need to adjust to the changing environment in the legal profession, and broaden their impact across campus. Law practice is becoming more inter-professional, and law schools should take this opportunity to partner with other units across campus to provide a better education both to their students and to the rest of the students at the university. A law school that becomes more integrated into the fabric of the university will find a successful path going forward.
