This essay argues that the Remedies Course is an excellent vehicle by which to assess whether students have achieved the types of knowledge, skills, and values legal educators likely wish them to have upon graduation. It first considers the educational environment in which we find ourselves, including proposed ABA accreditation standards focusing on the needs for greater assessment of professional skills. The paper then explains how a capstone experience at the conclusion of a student’s legal education is one means of addressing these proposed new standards. Finally, it explains why Remedies is one of a select group of courses that can be designed to meet the ABA requirements.
