In The Value of Variety, A Professor’s Guide, four law-school professors demonstrate that variety in the classroom is necessary to enhance law school learning. In the guide, the professors go beyond the Socratic Method and reveal over 80 creative teaching exercises to use in the classroom. With 38 years of combined teaching experience, these professors collaborated to create this go-to guide and tested each in the classroom. For quick reference, each class exercise is listed by skill category. The exercises develop the lawyering skills practice demands, bring necessary variety to the classroom, and are appreciated by students.
