The twenty-first century challenge for law schools in general, and for labor and employment law professors in particular, is truly to prepare students for the practice of law. Diverse voices have criticized the legal academy for how far it has fallen short of meeting that challenge.1 The most detailed and comprehensive critique of law schools’ failure adequately to prepare students for the practice of law was presented by The Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching in its 2007 study generally known as the “Carnegie Report.”2
