Abstract

How can I meet the goals that I set for my law students in our current academic and professional environment? Structural changes take time and money. But what can we do, on the cheap, right now? I am here to make three relatively simple suggestions to law professors in tandem with the three general standards for promotion and tenure: listen (teaching), bring your scholarship to your classroom (scholarship), and be attentive to your students’ career objectives beyond the classroom (service). I am proposing conceiving the law professor as a learning guide, and, in that way, the traditional three pillars of promotion and tenure as pedagogical markers for what scholars have called "generative learning."

Keywords: generative learning, teaching, scholarship, service, pedogogy
