This is from 2003 and they're still teaching via the Socratic method at UT? Leiter must be all hat and no cattle.
Did we already have this conversation here, or was that on some other posting in the Pre-Law board?I don't mind the Socratic Method at all. I'd love to get called on in class every day. Of course, I like to hear myself talk. I will dread when the teacher calls on the dumb student who didn't read the material the night before and also has a stuttering problem. I hope to never sound remotely close to that type of student. I also hope we don't have any in the class.Worse than listening to a professor Socratically question an unprepared student, I hate listening to professors lecture the entire hour about what I read just the night before and already understand. I'm used to technical classes, though, where you either understand it or you don't. Maybe a lecturing professor wouldn't be as bad in Law, where there are supposed to be more nuances to explore.
