    Lets drop a year of undergraduate education and make law a 5 year Bachelor's Degree program like it is in England for the solicitor side of the the profession. Let those who desire to go into the trial pits take an extra year and go to something similar to the Inns. STCL, St. Mary's, UH, SMU, and Texas's new law schools at UNT in downtown Dallas and Texas A&M's (formerly Texas Wesleyan) are well situated do these things. Not certain that UT-Austin would appreciate this and Baylor and Tech might not have the resources to do this in either Waco or Lubbock
