LSI year in review: some (crazy?) ideas for reform
This blog has now been up and running for a full year now, and we are closing in on 250 posts. (Here is LSI's first post saying hello to the world last October.) I am hopeful some of my co-bloggers will join with me in some year-in-review posts; this first one will spotlight prior posts noting or suggesting particular reform ideas. Here goes:
Specific teaching ideas/suggestions:
- Student blogging as an educational experience
- Making Law Courses Available on Web
- Is a paperless classroom inevitable ... desirable?
- Why shouldn't all law schools regularly host real oral arguments?
- Law School Innovation: Banning Laptops in Class?
- Rethinking Powerpoint in the Law School Classroom
General curriculum reform ideas/suggestions:
- Should law schools move away from a semester system?
- The Rise of International Law in the First-Year Curriculum
- The Mandatory Third Year Curriculum
- Innovating the third-year: no standard classes?
- Apprenticeship as Part of Legal Education
- Should law schools support/cultivate an on-line notes archive?
Other ideas and suggestions for law schools:
- Helping (underpaid?) judges through law school innovation
- Does (law school) size matter?
- Should law professors be required to practice?
- Open-admission law journals
- Should law schools be developing legal wikis?
- Would it be unethical (or even illegal) to put my US News vote up for sale?
Obviously, this is only a very small sample of the topics discussed on this blog over the last year. But these posts generated a significant number of interesting comments, and they highlight the diverse array of issues that jump into the heads of folks interested in law school innovations.
