Legal Education According to Law Students

Law.com has an interesting story - "New Survey Tackles Complex Questions About Law Schools" - about a detailed law student survey.

Survey factors went beyond demographics and traditional ranking measures, such as campus resources, school reputations and bar exam pass rates, to more complex factors, including student expectations, attitudes and scholastic habits.

The survey revealed some real downers.

• 63 percent of students said they received scant support in job placement.
• 56 percent had not participated in pro bono or volunteer work.
• 56 percent incurred $60,000 or more in tuition debt.
• 32 percent never have substantive discussions with faculty outside of class.
• 18 percent said they "never" received prompt written or oral feedback from professors.

I'll probably comment later: in the meantime, check it out.
