The legal profession's pro bono obsession leads to the question, “who benefits?”
The next Liberty Law Talk is with Brian Tamanaha on his important book, Failing Law Schools. This discussion focuses on Tamanaha’s claim that legal education is the victim of regulatory capture by the ABA Legal Education Committee.
