Ind. Law - New Fastcase 50 includes William (Bill) Henderson, IU Mauer
The Fastcase 50 Class of 2013 includes:
William (Bill) Henderson Professor of Law and Director, Center on the Global Legal Profession, Indiana University Maurer School of Law As one of the very few law professors who studies the business of law, Bill Henderson's work has had profound effect outside the academy. One of his most recent works in Pepperdine Law Review, A Blueprint for Change, begins with the observation: “United States legal education needs to change. Simply stated, there is a shrinking demand for the product we offer” and concludes with a proposal for a consortium of change-agent law schools to teach lawyering skills in the third year. With others, Bill introduced a new first-year course at the IU School of Law in 2009 called The Legal Profession, a mandatory four-hour course that covers the ethics, competencies, and economics of the legal profession. The course uses legal ethics and the law of lawyering as the spine of a course that educates law students on the competencies they must develop to be successful lawyers in the 21st Century.
