Among the materials distributed to all the attendees at the Mother Ship's Annual Meeting in D.C. is a glossy piece containing the 2005 survey results of the Law School Survey of Student Engagement. There's interesting stuff in it, including things you might not expect (part-time students are better-prepared than full-time students throughout law school), and some that you might (law school is better at teaching critical thinking than in promoting understanding among different ethnic and racial groups).
The title is a little unfortunate: The Law School Years: Probing Questions, Actionable Data. Actionable? Since my home institution is one of the participants, I hope not.
