The transcription of 2013 Chapman Law Review Symposium: “The Future of Law, Business, and Legal Education: How to Prepare Students to Meet Corporate Needs”. Professor Rankin, along with James E. Moliterno, R. Michael Cassidy, and Susan B. Myers, answer the first panel question, "Can law schools prepare to students to be practice ready?" Professor Rankin discusses the importance of innovations in legal education, and explains how she is actually changing the first year to focus on real-client and real-world experiences. She explains the innovations taking place at Seattle University in her first year lawyering skills classes, where her first-year students tackle “real life” legal issues.
