Abstract

The authors were presenters at the 2017 Transactional Clinic Conference: Built for Impact, held at University of Pennsylvania Law School in Philadelphia on June 1-2. Their topic was Learning Outcomes, Competencies, Skills and Assessments in Transactional Clinics. As part of their presentation, they prepared a survey of conference participants to gather information about how they define learning outcomes, and define and assess competencies and skills in their transactional clinics. The survey also asked numerous demographic questions about the transactional clinics which were represented, including types of clients represented and matters addressed, number of students supervised, prerequisites, grading, use of technology, and others. This document summarizes the results of the survey, in which 31 clinicians participated.

Keywords: transactional law, legal skills, competencies, clinics, assessments
