Advantages and Disadvantages of the Legal Education

We learned that legal education continues to be criticized on several grounds. First, it shuns social science and neglects important considerations of race, class, gender, and other social variables. Second, it socializes students to be more politically conservative than when they began law school and, more specifically, orients them to the needs of corporations and other established interests rather than to the needs of the poor and people of non-Caucasian heritage. Third, legal education is said to be brutal for students and particularly alienating for women.

What is your opinion of these arguments? Do you believe the legal education system encourages people to pursue careers in Cause Lawyering? Please support your opinion with at least one outside source.
