Following The U.S. Supreme Court During The Current Term

A reminder-- as we noted in an earlier post, with the U.S. Supreme Court’s current session in full swing, and with the issuance of decisions at a dizzying rate, remember to follow the action using two “old favorites”:  The Supreme Court Web site and SCOTUSblog.

Annual Law Student Survey Released

The results of the 2011 Law School Survey of Student Engagement are out. This annual survey is designed to measure how law students throughout the country study, experience growth, communicate with faculty, and rate the quality of their law school experience. The LSSSE was completed last year by more than 33,000 students at 95 schools in the United States and Canada. What do current law students really think about law school?  Would they enroll in the same school again?  Is law school helping them develop job-related skills?  Take a look at the survey results here.
