2016-17 Survey Of The Clinical Legal Education Programs At 187 Law Schools

Robert Kuehn (Washington University) & David A. Santacroce (Michigan) (with Margaret Reuter (UMKC) & Sue Schechter (UC-Berkeley), The 2016-17 Survey of Applied Legal Education (Center for the Study of Applied Legal Education ("CSALE") (2017)):

Over 1,100 law clinic and externship faculty from 187 law schools (94% of ABA accredited U.S. schools) participated in CSALE’s latest tri-annual survey. The 2016-17 survey (CSALE’s fourth) provides the most comprehensive, accurate picture to date of clinical legal education programs, courses, and faculty. The report summarizes the collective responses from schools and their faculty on questions relating to program design, capacity, administration, staffing, funding, and pedagogy, and the role of clinical legal education and educators in the legal academy.

In addition to the report, upon request CSALE provides customized information on various aspects of the data to law schools, legal educators, scholars, and oversight agencies.
