Law schools and individual law teachers interested in implementing a comprehensive assessment program will benefit from Outcomes Assessment for Law Schools by Gregory Munro. This book provides practical guidance on the development of an overall assessment program for law schools as well as methods of assessment to improve teaching and learning in individual law courses. Munro's book provides concrete examples to demonstrate various aspects of assessment. The author anticipates various obstacles to the establishment of assessment programs, and he suggests ways to address those obstacles.

Faced with limited resources, growing competition for students, and a changing legal environment, law schools must consider more carefully their specific niche in legal education. Outcomes Assessment for Law Schools provides a mechanism for the effective marshaling of limited education resources while at the same time revitalizing the academic enterprise.
