Success, Status, and the Goals of a Law School

Abstract:     
Law schools wish to be successful. However, they generally fail to clarify goals in core areas and develop measures for gauging success in those areas. This failure leads to reliance on externally devised measures that do not appropriately reflect institutional success. The problems are exacerbated when the extrinsic measure is substantially a measure of status, rather than success.

It will always be difficult for law schools to set appropriate goals. However, schools can still understand the difference between success and status, and recognize that some putative measures of success are substantially measures of status instead.
