New Law Student Survey

Spring Semester classes start for most law students in just a few days, so this might be a good time to take a look at the annual survey that reflects law student satisfaction and engagement with the law school experience. The 2010 Law School Survey of Student Engagement (LSSSE), "Student Engagement in Law School: In Class and Beyond," was recently released. This year, it represents the survey responses of almost 25,000 law students from 77 law schools. What motivates some law students more than others? Are law students engaged with faculty as career mentors? How many are satisfied with career planning support and with preparation for working with clients? Finally, do the survey results reflect your perceptions, level of satisfaction, and experiences as a law student? Read the report and find out.
