Engaging Legal Education: Moving Beyond the Status Quo
Findings from 2006 Law School Survey of Student Engagement (LSSSE), Engaging Legal Education: Moving Beyond the Status Quo, show that how often law school students interact with their professors is strongly related to many desirable outcomes of legal education. The findings also indicate that students who participate in clinical and field experiences or who do pro bono work report gaining more than their peers in speaking and writing proficiency, thinking critically and analytically, and solving complex real-world problems.
The 2006 survey is based on information from more than 24,000 law students at 64 law schools and gives law schools an idea of how well students are learning, along with what students put into and get out of their law school experience.
