Abstract

This report presents the results of the 2007-08 Center for the Study of Applied Legal Education (CSALE) “Survey of Applied Legal Education.” The Survey was composed of two parts – a Master Survey that was directed to each of the 188 ABA fully-accredited U.S. law schools and a Staffing Sub-Survey that was distributed to applied legal educators at those schools. The results provide valuable insight into the state of applied legal education in areas including program design and structure, pedagogical techniques and practices, common program challenges, and the treatment of applied legal educators in the legal academy. Because the Survey will be repeated every three years, the results provide a baseline for examining the growth and development of applied legal education going forward.
