Although it is obvious that the teaching style of every successful academic must be the product of his own personality and experience, I do, nevertheless, believe that the exchange of ideas on the subject of legal education is constructive. It may suggest ways to make minor changes and thereby to improve one's own methods or approaches. Therefore, I present here some thoughts on the Socratic method of teaching law and the results of my own experimentation with cases as problems for classroom debate. This approach has been successful for me, and it is my hope that these ideas may be useful to others in one way or another.
