Over the past decade, Stanford has intensified its focus on preparing students for careers teaching law and has emerged as a dominant force in legal academia. A number of factors make Stanford an exciting place to prepare for an academic career in law. Stanford Law School's Program for Aspiring Law Teachers offers many structured opportunities to gain exposure to legal scholarship, produce it, and prepare to cultivate the next generation of lawyers.

Between 2006 and 2011, roughly 15 percent of each entering class pursued a scholarly career, and nearly 70 percent of graduates who sought such positions succeeded — an impressive placement record.
