One of the things you have to admire about Brian Leiter is his willingness to put a position out there (usually with more than a bit of rhetoric aplomb) and let it be fired upon from all angles. If you haven't caught it yet, the current discussion revolves around whether Northwestern's new two-year program will succeed in making it a, if not the, school of choice for employers. (Well, it probably already is a school of choice, but whatever.) Professor Leiter's skepticism revolves around any programmatic changes that result in anything but a focus on turning out the smartest of the smart.
