    I enjoyed reading the announcement, which highlighted some issues discussed in Daniel Solove’s post last week re: the value of a law school education. Here is a relevant quote:

    >>>“A law degree is a great introduction to broad areas of leadership — political leadership, business leadership and civic leadership,” McKinney said. “The IU law school in Indianapolis plays a vital role in developing the leaders Indiana needs to succeed.”>>>

    What’s that, you say? Law school has more objectives than simply teaching a craftsman to draft a will or a contract?

    And here’s another:

    >>>Originally trained as an engineer, McKinney received his law degree from IU and also holds a bachelor’s degree from the U.S. Naval Academy. Until his retirement in 2005, McKinney served as chairman and CEO of First Indiana Corporation, parent company of First Indiana Bank (now known as M&I Bank). He was also a founding partner of Bose McKinney & Evans LLP, an Indianapolis law firm, from which he retired in 1992.

    >>>Because of his commitment to community-based banking, McKinney was appointed by President Jimmy Carter to chair multiple federal banking, insurance, mortgage and loan agencies. In that role, McKinney established model non-discrimination regulations and pushed for community investment.>>>

    So sometimes education helps to prepare one for many roles in life, not just a trade.
