Student Engagement in Law School: Preparing 21st Century Lawyers. Annual Survey Results, 2008
Law School Survey of Student Engagement
The Law School Survey of Student Engagement (LSSSE) documents dimensions of quality in legal education and provides information about law student participation in effective educational activities that law schools and other organizations can use to improve student learning. The insights into the law school student experience reported in this study are based on responses from nearly 30,000 law students at 85 law schools who completed LSSSE in spring 2008. The researchers also draw upon several sets of experimental questions appended to the survey and given to a subset of the 2008 respondents. This study features three themes: (1) "Ethical and Professional Development in the Law School"; (2) "Developing Legal Skills"; and (3) "Computers in the Law School Classroom". Findings, both promising and disappointing, are presented. (Contains 9 tables, 7 figures, 6 resources, and 2 footnotes.)
