Abstract:     
In this seminal article, Robin A. Boyle and Rita Dunn for the first time assess the learning styles of law students using the Dunn and Dunn Learning Style Model. The article surveys the literature criticizing the traditional methods of law school teaching and explores the growing movement advocating that law schools should experiment with research on learning styles. The results of the testing of the St. John's University School of Law students are provided. In summary, learning students are diverse in their learning style. The authors recommend using Homework Prescriptions and conclude that a single method of teaching would be ineffective with all students.
