Survey of Law School Faculty : View of Law School Management
This study presents the results of a survey of US law school faculty about their law schools management. The representative study presents their views on hiring full time and adjunct faculty, awarding tenure, law school asset sales and tuition abatement plans, and on other issues regarding the law school budget. Among the other issues covered: their opinion of how well law school management is handling fundraising, alumni relations, promotion, facilities management, library services, international and domestic student recruitment, and special events management.In addition, faculty were asked to evaluate managements efforts to foster grants and other financial support for faculty research, to publicize faculty research and achievements, and to furnish top line information technology support. Faculty also give their views on the apparent relaxation of student admission standards at many law schools and what this means for the future of the profession. In addition, faculty offer their opinions on what exactly they like and dont like about their law school management, and where they would like to see their law schools go in the future. Many cite specific laws schools and policies worthy of emulation. 111 Faculty from 36 US law schools participated in the survey.Just a few of the many findings from this 90-page perfect bound report are: About 51% of interviewees older than 60 think that their institutions' management generally is more able than that of other law schools, while only 22% of the respondents aged 30-39 believe so . About 32% of the respondents think that their law schools should "increase faculty compensation in line with past increase", while only 14% believe that their law schools should "work to reduce faculty compensation costs along with other cost reduction measures." About 76% of the respondents from public law schools are satisfied with the overall quality of special events management at the law school, while only 60% of their colleagues from private law schools feel the same way.
