Abstract

Are you assuming that because the majority of law students in your classes are visual and/or tactile learners because they have grown up using computers, and we see students using computers all the time? If so, then implicit is this assumption is that learning styles are determined by environmental factors alone or that students' awareness of strengths lead them to capitalize on their personal learning styles. This article challenges these assumptions and suggests teaching approaches to reach students' diverse learning styles.
