Abstract

As adult learners, law students can benefit in many ways from dynamic experiential exercises. This article will describe an innovative, interdisciplinary teaching and learning activity for law students in juvenile and family law subject areas. The exercise incorporates professionals in related fields to join in the exercise, with benefits to be shared by all involved. Dynamic interdisciplinary exchanges not only provide benefits for students, but also faculty and clients. This activity transcends the traditional simulation through the integration of non-law professionals. Faculty interested in replicating this exercise can creatively adjust the exercise based on their unique issues, areas, and/or availability of community partners.
