Student Engagement in Law School: Enhancing Student Learning. Annual Survey Results, 2009
Law School Survey of Student Engagement
The Law School Survey of Student Engagement (LSSSE) focuses on activities that affect learning in law school. The results in this year's survey show how law students use their time, what they think about their legal training, and what law schools can do to improve engagement and learning. The selected results reported in this study are based on responses from 26,641 law students at 82 law schools who completed LSSSE in spring 2009. The researchers also draw upon several sets of experimental questions appended to the survey for a subset of the 2009 respondents. This study features three themes: (1) "Another Look at Faculty Feedback"; (2) "Beyond the Classroom"; and (3) "Legal Education in a Changing World". Findings, both promising and disappointing, are presented. (Contains 5 tables, 7 figures, 9 resources and 4 footnotes.) [For the 2008 annual survey results, see ED506934.]
