Abstract

US law schools use teaching methodologies such as the Socratic method and the Project Based Learning. This paper explains the main features of these types of methodology and the benefits that they offer to law students and the university community. Therefore, and within the European Higher Education Area, this paper argues that Spanish law schools should generalize the application of the Socratic method and PBL in the J.D.. The authors also provide an example of Socratic PBL, derived from their teaching experience, setting out in detail how to successfully implement these techniques of active learning in law schools.
