Teaching Style

The study of law requires learning basic rules of societal conduct and the ability to apply those rules to real life situations. Therefore, the student will be expected to have read the assigned materials for the upcoming lecture in order to participate in class discussion. Students will be posed with questions about the application of the law to the facts of hypothetical situations.

The students in the program will not merely memorize the rules and concepts of the law, but will also leave with the ability to analyze the facts of a case and apply the appropriate law to those facts. Classroom discussion often becomes lively and students also learn from one another by the use of the socratic methodology of instruction.

Together with the standard classroom lecture, students will also be instructed with the use of classroom electronic technology which helps round out individual and group learning.
