Professor included in legal magazine's "bucket list"

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrint

A National Jurist article listing “23 law profs to take before you die” included a professor at the Indiana University Maurer School of Law.

The magazine recognized professor William Henderson’s course, “The Law Firm as a Business Organization,” and his responsibilities regarding the law school’s legal professions course that is required for all first-year law students.

In that course, students learn about various practice areas and business environments for attorneys, such as law firms, solo practices, government work, and other areas, as well as examples of various ethical and professional issues they will face.  The purpose is to better train law students to become lawyers – not just think like lawyers – by the time they graduate.

The article refers to Henderson as “the leading thinker on the employment forefront in the legal profession,” and mentions his academic studies about the legal profession and legal education on a national and global scale.

Henderson’s research was also recently featured in the ABA Journal article, “What Lawyers Earn,” which included his work studying statistics about the legal communities in each county in the United States. IL blogged about that article March 10.

Other professors in the National Jurist article teach at Duke, University of California - Berkeley, Chicago, Harvard, and Yale.
