Law schools have obligations both to their students and society to provide a learning environment that helps students achieve the highest academic standards and prepares students to assume their responsibilities as effective, moral attorneys.  The Institute’s mission is to help law schools meet those obligations through its work to improve the quality of teaching and learning in legal education.

The Institute's goals are to:

  • provide national leadership on effective teaching and learning in law schools through its conferences, training programs, and consulting services;
  • maintain a national reputation for quality programs, responsiveness to law teachers' needs, and innovation in law teaching;
  • support student-centered curriculum reform;
  • serve as a clearinghouse for resources on improving the quality of legal education; and
  • support research and development of materials to enhance teaching and learning in law schools.
