Excerpt

In response to the University of California, Office of the President's Request for a Proposal for a study of the Need for a New Law School in California, RAND conducted an assessment of future workforce needs for lawyers in California through the year 2015. The study was carried out under a contract from the University of California, whose responsibilities under the California Master Plan for Higher Education include helping to meet California's workforce needs.

This research was conducted jointly by RAND's Institute for Civil Justice (ICJ) and RAND Education. Each of these Units provides analysis and assessments for decisionmakers and for the public domain. The ICJ's mission is to help make the civil justice system more efficient and equitable by supplying government, private decision makers, and the public with the results of objective, empirically based, analytical research. RAND Education conducts analytical research and provides technical assistance to improve education policy and practice in all sectors that offer education and training, including higher education.

In this current research, both primary and secondary data were gathered to develop a profile of practicing lawyers in California, project future supply and demand for lawyers in California, and gain the expert opinion of individuals within the legal community on issues that may affect future supply and demand. The results of the study may now be cited. They are of interest to individuals within the legal community and administration in higher education, especially in California.
