Abstract

Since the landmark Best Practices for Legal Education Reports was published in 2007, law schools have struggled with the issue of integrating problem-solving exercises, real-world lawyering, ethics lessons, and clinical opportunities into their curricula to supplement traditional lectures and Socratic dialogue. In this short essay, I describe how I have utilized mock exercises and projects in my upper-level Federal Criminal Law class, creating new projects every year to cover the greatest number of skills using the most current legal problems and issues.
