Learn from Andrew M. Perlman, Dean of Suffolk University Law School and Professor of Law, about the innovations at Suffolk Law in the area of curricular reform, admissions, and the delivery of legal education. Dean Perlman started at Suffolk Law as a professor in 2001, and since then has been instrumental in paving the way towards the future of legal education, including his role as founding director of their Institute on Legal Innovation and Technology (you can learn more about it in Episode 29 with Gabe Tenninbaum) and inspiring their Legal Innovation and Technology Concentration. Whether considering alternative pathways to admission to law school in order to diversify the profession, or offering creative delivery models of legal education to maximize access, or train law students to develop technology tools to aid in providing access to justice, Suffolk Law is redefining what law schools can do. Dean Perlman also took that creative eye towards collaborations among law schools that can help advance systemic change, including the ABA's Legal Education Police Practices Consortium, in which St. Mary's is a founding member, and includes dozens of other law schools.
