The system of training through law schools and vocational work is elitist and prolonged, and leaves judges’ opinions at risk of being, or appearing, out of date or out of touch.

what does 'prolonged' mean?

I think why this word suddenly appears.
It does not make sense, doesn't it?

    I understand your confusion if you looked up "prolong" in the dictionary. The appropriate definitions can be found in the Word Reference dictionary, but they are listed under "prolonged".
