    As legal education continues to transform, legal academics and administrators increasingly rely on empirical data to determine the best way forward. The Law School Survey of Student Engagement (LSSSE) has perhaps the largest collection of student data ever amassed, housing over 350,000 responses from students at schools across the country. Celebrating its 15th year, LSSSE strives to capture an annual snapshot of the law student experience. The LSSSE Survey covers numerous aspects of law student life, including questions about educational debt, belonging on campus, interactions with classmates, future career preferences, and more. This panel features national scholars who utilize LSSSE data to further their own research on legal education and the legal profession. Whether analyzing affirmative action jurisprudence, considering opportunities and limitations facing legal professionals, examining raceXgender variations in the LSSSE data, or determining predictors of bar success, all speakers share the goal of improving legal education through action-oriented data.
     Papers from this program will be published in The Journal of Legal Education.
    The Section held a virtual business meeting prior to the Annual Meeting.
