The Law School Survey of Student Engagement (LSSSE) has just released its 2009 annual survey report, "Student Engagement in Law School: Enhancing Student Learning." Unlike well-known rankings and other studies, the LSSSE is dedicated to knowing and improving the quality of the law student learning experience. Law students at 82 schools, including Hofstra, completed the survey during the past year. The selected findings in the report focus on how current law students describe their engagement with the classroom learning environment, faculty feedback, and outside-class discussions with professors. The report also charts factors such as motivation, the relative value of various law student activities, changes in employment expectations and interests, and the impact of technology and of law school debt. Before Spring Semester begins in earnest, check it out.
