Keywords: Legal Education, Comparative Law, Law Schools, U.S. Legal System

This paper aims to provide an alternative appraisal of U.S. legal education. It starts by addressing the main character of the TV Series Better Call Saul, the lawyer James McGill, in order to assess the existence of several lawyers’ prototypes, as well as multiple models in the U.S. legal education. By employing a comparative approach, both in a synchronic dimension and in a diachronic one, this article describes the development of the correspondence law school, night-school and online law schools, along with – and in parallel with – the “hegemonicµ university law schools. Such analysis is apt to demonstrate the existing complexity in the realm of the U.S. legal education
