Teaching Law by Design: Engaging Students from the Syllabus to the Final Exam
Professors Michael Hunter Schwartz, Sophie Sparrow, and Gerry Hess, leaders in legal education, have collaborated to offer a second edition of their book. Applying the research on teaching and learning, this book guides new and experienced law teachers through the process of designing and teaching a course. The book addresses how to plan a course; design a syllabus; plan individual class sessions; engage and motivate students; use a variety of teaching techniques; assess student learning; and how to be a life-long learner as a teacher. New chapters focus on creating lasting learning, experiential learning, and troubleshooting common teaching challenges.
