Two hundred eleven Notre Dame Law School (NDLS) 2Ls (49%) and 3Ls (51%) responded to the 2011 Summer Research Experience Survey conducted from October 10th through 14th by the Research Department. This was a response rate of 46%. The annual survey helps the legal research instructors assess whether our students have the research skills to successfully compete with other law students in summer jobs. Legal research instructors Dwight King, Chris O’Byrne, Patti Ogden, and Warren Rees are proud that, over the years, NDLS students have reported confidence in their research skills, with many rating their skills as better than those of students from other schools. Here are a few highlights.
