Abstract

In recent years, I have added several experiential learning elements to my course on animals and the law. In this article, I describe rationale for using these techniques, and describe in detail the experiential elements I use in the course, as well as the benefits and drawbacks of doing so. Finally, I will look more broadly at ways in which experiential tasks in the classroom can benefit a student's educational experience.

Keywords: experiential learning, animal law
