President Obama, a former law student himself, said Friday that he thinks law schools should look at offering a degree after just two years of study, rather than the standard three years.

“The third year, they’d be better off clerking or practicing in a firm,” the president said at a town hall at the State University of New York-Binghamton.

Mr. Obama, who attended Harvard Law School and later taught law at the University of Chicago, was answering a question about matching quality education with progress on trying to limit costs.
