Law School Compendium Project

Pages from the Law School Compendium Project

Law School Compendium Project

A few years ago, deans from several law schools joined together to begin a collaborative tradition. Each year, these deans distribute a collection of single-page reports containing brief messages from each of their respective schools. The goal of this compendium is to showcase the excellence that exists in legal education today.

With so many exciting developments happening now and on the horizon, these compendiums are designed to be a “one-stop shop” for insights into the current law school climate.

It’s a simple question, but the answers shared by the students in this video
are as rich and varied as the value of a law degree itself.
