Abstract

This report presents the results of the 2013-14 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 ABA fully-accredited U.S. law school; Law Clinic and Field Placement Course Sub-Surveys that were distributed by the schools to the persons responsible for each distinct law clinic or field placement course at the school; and a Faculty Sub-Survey that was distributed by the schools to each person teaching in a law clinic or field placement course. Eighty-eight percent of accredited law schools participated in the survey.

The results provide valuable insight into clinical programs and law clinic and field placement courses in areas such as design, capacity, administration, funding, and pedagogy and into the role and status of clinical legal education and educators in the legal academy. This is the third triennial survey, following up on surveys in 2007-08 and 2010-11.

Keywords: legal education, applied legal education, clinical legal education, clinic, law clinic, externship, field placement, law school, law faculty, clinical faculty, clinician
