Thomas Shaffer is the new dean at Notre Dame's Law School and he has thoughts to share about the role of legal education in shaping future lawyers.
"We are beginning to find something unique by way of educational focus, something hopeful. It is a kind of humanistic legal education in Thomas More's understanding of humanism....We are beginning to find at Notre Dame Law School the possibility of a people-centered professional school." (Thomas L. Shaffer, Dean of ND Law School).
