This report presents the results of the 2010-11 Center for the Study of Applied Legal Education (CSALE) “Survey of Applied Legal Education.” The Survey was composed of four parts – a Master Survey that was directed to each of the 194 ABA fully-accredited U.S. law schools; Live-Client Clinics and Field Placement Program Sub-Surveys that were distributed by the schools to the persons responsible for each distinct law clinic or field placement program at the school; and a Faculty Sub-Survey that was distributed by the schools to each applied legal educator at its school. The results provide valuable insight into the state of applied legal education in areas such as program design, capacity, administration, funding, pedagogy, program challenges, and the role of applied legal education and educators in the legal academy. This is the second triennial survey, following up on the initial survey in 2007-08.
