Why and How Professional Education Must Change

In the dynamic, hyper-connected, and unpredictable 21st century, workplace and career paradigms are rapidly changing. The professions are no exception. Technology has routinized and increased access to the expertise that traditionally set professionals apart from other workers, leading some to forecast professions’ demise. Even if new forms of complexity and needs for expertise continue to outrun technology, professionals’ lives and careers will diverge dramatically from past norms. The number of theories, diagnoses, and strategies among which each professional—alone or in teams—must make informed and workable judgments will increase exponentially, as will the rapidity with which their specialties become obsolete and have to be retooled or replaced. In this world, learning to learn will far outstrip the importance of applying the specialized knowledge with which professionals are initially programmed.

If this prediction is correct, then university-based professional schools, which historically have made their living by providing that initial programming, must change at the same pace as their graduates’ careers will change. This talk will address what those changes might look like, with particular focus on law schools.

The Stone Circle Luncheon originated as an informal group of Columbia Law School graduates and special friends whose affiliation with the Law School was established during the deanship (1910–1924) of Harlan Fiske Stone, 1898. Their luncheons, held from time to time, by 1974 had become a formal, annual luncheon to which we welcome members of classes who have celebrated the 50th anniversary of their graduation from the Law School.
