Justice Jan Patterson, justice-in-residence at Baylor Law School addressed the Texas Association of Defense Counsel at its April meeting in Washington, D.C., on issues facing law schools, including the debate whether legal education should be reduced to two years instead of the current three years.

Acknowledging that the three-year curriculum must be rigorous and intense, Justice Patterson counseled against any reduction and urged that the third year of study should be the capstone of the student’s law school journey and a "signature" year for the law school — as recognized by Baylor Law's curriculum requirements.
