Professor Edgar Cahn's article, "Choosing the Right Law School" has been published by the Huffington Post at http://www.huffingtonpost.com/edgar-cahn/choosing-the-right-law-sc_b_4763820.html

 In the article, Professor Cahn asks and answers the following questions:

1. In law school, will the question of "What is justice?" be taught with the same rigor as "What is law?"

2. Does the curriculum and grading system of the law school speak to lawyering competence with clients?

3. What grounding will law school offer to equip you with to respond to entire systems that perpetuate injustice?

4. How does your law school deal with the pervasive racial disparity that permeates virtually every public system (child welfare, academic achievement, school dropouts, juvenile justice, substance abuse, foster care, corrections and health care)? Perhaps equally important, does the law school, itself, reflect those problems?

5. Have you considered whether the legal delivery system -- a system which feeds on debt-ridden recent law graduates desperate to pay off law school loans -- perpetuates injustice?
