For more than a decade, Western State College of Law was engaged in a reflective evaluation process that resulted in innovative teaching methods, a supportive learning environment for its students, and a system of assessment designed to improve outcomes. The institution's regular and systematic review of programs, teaching, and outcomes led to early adoption of practices now identified as key components for improvement in the current movement to reform legal education. This article discusses recent reform-minded initiatives and the importance of adopting curricular changes to reflect student needs.
