Lawlapalooza: A Research Odyssey

2019 AALL Poster Session

social media post


At the end of the event, game cards can be used to tally statistics. Game cards can be used to gauge the total number of students who participated in the game, the total student participation by academic year, and the student's level of interaction (based on the number of stamps collected per game card).  Statistics are also helpful in planning for future research fairs.  We've used statistics to plan the layout of the tables and even to determine how much pizza to order. 

Feedback should be solicited from student attendees, library volunteers, and vendors. From 2011 through 2014 we sent follow-up surveys to vendors to determine whether they thought the fair was successful, what would they change and if they would be interested in participating the following year.   Also, thank you emails should be sent to vendors, library staff, law school facilities staff, and any law school administrators that may have assisted.
