I have taught admiralty and maritime law exactly twice. That experience hardly makes me an expert in training future proctors. What that experience does give me, however, is the perspective that comes from having recently confronted the challenges of learning the field myself. And that perspective has led me to teach the admiralty survey course differently from how I teach any of my other classes and differently from how i perceive other admiralty classes that are taught by more experienced teachers. In this essay, I hope to explain how and why I teach admiralty differently, with the hope of offering a new teacher's perspective on revitalizing the admiralty survey course.
