Teaching Support for Law Faculty - Center for Engaged Learning in the Law

The mission of the Center for Engaged Learning in the Law
blog, authored by several law professors and hosted at Elon
University, "is intended to contribute to the discourse on
teaching and learning in law, from the inspirational
to the whimsical, to the mechanical. It includes the varying
perspectives of teachers, administrators, learners and
practicioners [sic]."

Content is organized under the following headings:
advice (for newer teachers, adjuncts, 1Ls, etc.);
inspiration (descriptions of teaching, learning and law
practice); prescriptions for improving legal education
mechanics (how to...); and, innovation (good, bad and
ugly ideas).
