Abstract

Law teachers too often enter the classroom with little to no guidance regarding how best to educate future lawyers. In this essay, I will explain my approach to teaching, one that I characterize as teaching deliberately — making intentional and considered decisions regarding my students’ legal education. Teaching deliberately has positively shaped my teaching and the lives of my students. Being deliberate — from designing courses to developing the classroom and fostering a lifetime of wellness in my students — makes all the difference in being an effective educator of successful, healthy future lawyers.
