A Word from One of Our Higher Education Clients:

In deciding whether to partner with Hanover, it ultimately boiled down to hiring additional staff versus hiring an external research firm. Because Hanover in effect becomes your own dedicated research arm, this struck us as a highly cost-effective way to expand our R&D resources and expertise at the same time.  And Hanover’s strong reputation in the education industry is well known.

With all of the changes taking place in the legal industry, we see great opportunity to reimagine much of what we do in order to best prepare our graduates for their careers.  This process rightly needs to be informed by sophisticated, data-driven research and will include assessments of industry needs, other law school activity, and of our own internal offerings and processes.
