My last two posts have been about student behavior in class, and in particular about the potential pitfalls of cell phones and computers in class. The posts can be found here and here. There were some very good comments to both posts, so be sure to check them out as well.
Ultimately, both posts were concerned with disruptions or distractions in class, as well as the importance of facilitating classroom discussion and student interest. Of course, no use of snazzy technology or bans on phones or computers will make a bad class good. But this got me to thinking: what do the readers of this blog think were the really good and really bad things about their law school classes? I'd really like to hear your thoughts.
So what was it? Were the classes too big? Did the Socratic method (or whatever approach the profs used) stink? What could have been done better? Did law school prepare you at all for your career in law? What did did you find particularly beneficial? Was there something you really enjoyed about law school? Etc. etc.
Basically, this is an open invitation to rant (or rave, if you have positive things to say). As someone who cares about the educational experience of law school, I'd really like to hear what you have to say.
