Matt Homman over at The [non] Billable Hour turned me onto this article about Yale’s business school experimenting with a new MBA curriculum:

The heart of the new first-year curriculum is a series of eight multidisciplinary courses, called Organizational Perspectives, that are structured around the organizational roles a manager must engage, motivate, and lead in order to solve problems — or make progress. These roles are both internal to the organization — the Innovator, the Operations Engine, the Employee, and Sourcing and Managing Funds (or CFO) — and external to the organization — the Investor, the Customer, the Competitor, and State and Society.

I think this is a great idea for law schools to consider. . . teach a curriculm based around the real-world experience of lawyers.  In Canada students must spend a couple of weeks “articling” in a variety of different practice areas.

So, if you were Dean of your Alma Mater, what would YOU put on the curriculm?  This is not a rhetorical question.  I don’t want to color your opinions with my own. . . I’ll explain why later, but I’d appreciate any thoughts or suggestions from readers of this blog.
