Nearly 30 law schools in the United States have or soon will offer a master's degree for nonlawyers -- up from just a handful two years ago. The programs differ slightly in name, structure and cost, but they generally are marketed to working professionals. Although the movement remains in its early stages, to administrators across the country it represents a promising counterpoint to waning interest in the traditional three-year J.D. degree. And while part of the incentive behind the trend is economic, the new direction also marks an effort to move legal education away from a one-size-fits-all model.
A paraplegic lawyer who has filed thousands of disability access suits is now facing a sex harassment suit by former employees, who also accuse him of something that has defense attorneys buzzing. The women say Scott Johnson sent them into businesses with cameras and measuring tapes, after which he would cite the findings in warning letters and filings, a potential violation of laws requiring plaintiffs to personally be denied access.
