Student Engagement in Law School: Knowing Our Students. Annual Survey Results, 2007
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. This paper presents select findings from the 2007 survey administration, focusing on some main themes. "Engagement and Age" looks at issues surrounding the new face of law student populations. Much has been written about the differences between the Millennial generation and its predecessors, and the LSSSE data help individuals understand such differences in the law school context. Next, "Law School Characteristics and Student Engagement" explores the ways in which the student experience differs by the types of law school students attend. "Race and Ethnicity and Student Engagement" explores the experiences of minority law students. Finally, "Another look at the 3L Experience" takes a closer look at the third year of law school to better understand how 3Ls spend their time, and what experiences seem to be most beneficial during this final year of study. A list of resources is included. (Contains 9 tables, 6 footnotes and 7 figures.) [For "Engaging Legal Education: Moving beyond the Status Quo. Annual Survey Results, 2006," see ED528384.]
