Abstract

Frequently overlooked in legal education is the psychomotor domain of Bloom’s taxonomy. The learning objectives in this domain concern the learning of the body, physical education in the broadest sense of the term. In legal education, psychomotor learning objectives can help law students learn how their bodies support their mental work, how their bodies communicate, and how other people’s bodies are communicating to them. This article explores the reasons why law professors should consider including in their lesson plans some learning objectives within the psychomotor domain and how they might do so.

Keywords: legal education, law pedagogy, physical education, Bloom's taxonomy
