The project behind this Report was initiated by the Adjunct Faculty Committee of the ABA Section of Legal Education and Admissions to the Bar in January 2009 at its meeting in San Diego. The Report aims to provide law schools with useful comparative data and identifies Best Practices based on what other institutions are doing to provide adjunct faculty with orientation, guidance, monitoring, and evaluation. In response to the ABA's new accreditation standards requiring law schools to provide professional skills training and recent studies urging law schools to make their programs more professionally relevant, the Committee collected data on current adjunct faculty practices and synthesized that data into this Report.
