Prepared to Practice? Data and Insights from Law Students and Practitioners (Bloomberg Law Partner Webinar)
This webinar will focus on how law schools can better prepare students for practice. The presenters will discuss key findings from Bloomberg Law’s survey on law school preparedness, highlighting opportunities for law school innovation, and share data-driven suggestions that can help law school faculty and staff better reach their students.
Major discussions will cover: common resources that law students use for their research, resources that are perceived as the most helpful for law students, program and course participation among law students, life experiences that impacted law school selection and debt, characteristics that successful attorneys are perceived to exhibit, and other related subjects.
Law librarians, law students, early career lawyers, law school faculty and staff
Attendees should leave this webinar feeling more informed about law school preparedness with a better understanding of:
- The research paths and methods used by students as well as those that are perceived as most effective;
- The impact that life experiences have on law school choice and student debt loads; and
- The gaps between the skills and knowledge students gain in law school versus the skills and knowledge they need as attorneys.
