Jennifer Romig and Mark Burge on Legal Literacy for Nonlawyers

Season 1, Ep. 505

In this episode, Jennifer Murphy Romig, Professor of Practice at Emory University School of Law, and Mark Edwin Burge, Professor of Law and Director of San Antonio Programs at Texas A&M University School of Law, discuss their work on legal education outside JD and LLM programs, in relation to their new book "Legal Literacy and Communication Skills: Working With Law and Lawyers," which is published by Carolina Academic Press 2020. They begin by explaining what non-JD and LLM legal education is and how it can help clients understand and use legal advice more effectively and efficiently. They describe their book, and how it approaches teaching legal concepts outside of a traditional law school context. And they reflect on how these programs are likely to play an important role in the future of legal education and practice. Romig is on Twitter at @JenniferMRomig and Burge is at @markburge.
