Check out this week’s collection of interesting articles in the world of Legal Education

The school is recovering following a decline in enrollment after the 2008 recession.

Attorney General William Barr will give a speech behind closed doors Friday at the University of Notre Dame law school in South Bend, Ind., according to the university.

The pedagogic style, in which an instructor uses an assigned seating chart with photographs to cold-call students to recite the facts of a case or opine upon its legal principles, has been hailed as the molder of young, legal minds for more than a century.

The Socratic method is not only old-fashioned but also unnecessary, and even harmful, to the training of young lawyers.
