Law School Assessment

A Discussion Group for Assessment Professionals
Hosted by California Western School of Law


This listserv is intended to be a community and clearinghouse for anyone involved in law school assessment to share ideas and methodologies, as well as to pose questions. The American Bar Association has joined regional higher education accreditors in focusing on the commitment of law schools to outcomes-based, evidence-informed education. For some accreditors and law schools, the focus on programmatic assessment in legal education is new and unfamiliar. This listserv seeks to be a platform for all law school faculty and staff involved in assessment – new and seasoned -- to share information, ideas, and learn from each other.
