Abstract

This entertaining lecture (in verse with visuals) attacks, light-heartedly, the Socratic-case method, extols the clinical method, and encourages greater use of the problem method. This is guaranteed to provoke the greater part of the legal academy.

JEL Classification: law school, legal education, Socratic method, clinical law teaching
