The socratic method is arguably the best method teaching, reason being that it leads to a conversation between the prof or lecturer and the student. At the end of the conversation a reasonanble student should then realise that the law is a rule that should be followed not a question of maybe something is right or wrong.
I couldn't disagree more. In my opinion, it's such a poor form of learning. I suppose it has some room to be used on a limited basis during the class room, but not dominate the discussion. A combination of socratic method, lecture, and student participation is a better approach. Just my two cents.
