What is missing from the vast majority of all the recent articles and debates on the failings of law school however, is the potential role technology or ed-tech could play. By integrating ed-tech, law schools could lower costs while maintaining, if not increasing, the overall value of the education.
It seems many of the solutions posed by many are too heavily focused on human capital and curriculum. Why not explore enhancing the delivery of education beyond the in-person talking head or group leader (clinics) and consider what the rest of higher-ed is ... integrating ed-tech.

Joshua Kubicki (jkubicki): Why an online pay-as-you-go model could be the future of higher #education. http://bit.ly/MgBIKE http://twitter.com/jkubicki/status/222518014132752386 retweet of @FastCoExist tweet (Sent via Seesmic http://www.seesmic.com)
Perhaps this would not work for traditional US based students but think about the "adult" learners, second career, foreign lawyers, and CA state bar takers that this might appeal to.
Would any law school do it? Would the ABA even allow it?
I think making education more accessible is never a bad thing even a legal education.
