The Socratic Teaching Style

Back to Syllabus | Next Video

The Socratic Teaching Style used in law school is the standard methodology by which most Law School Professors teach their students.  Its usually described and as question-and-answer back-and-forth between the Professor and a randomly called upon student.  Generally, the Professor will call upon a student in the class and begin by asking the student an easier question about the case.  Then the questions get progressively more in-depth and difficult for the student to answer.  It is for this reason that law students need to always be prepared by reading the case prior to class, because they never know when they will be called upon by the Professor and thus enter the Socratic interrogation.
