What makes a good law teacher? We need your help to find out…

Teaching how to get away with murder, optional
Teaching how to get away with murder, optional

Due to repeated and popular requests, Legally India is conducting research on the quality of Indian law schools’ faculty.

But first, we have to know what to look for.

So, to begin the initiative, we would like to ask students and teachers of various Indian law schools, what they think makes a good law teacher. Consider it a brain storming session before we get started properly.

Please leave comments below to let us know your thoughts. Please keep it clean and don’t name names that could get us in trouble.

As food for thought, here are a few thoughts to get you started.

As a law student, are you satisfied with your classroom experience? Why or why not? Is your faculty not qualified enough? Do they not have enough experience? Can’t you understand them? Do they not care? Or are there some other factors resulting your discontent?

In how many papers of your current curriculum do you rely on self-study, instead of classroom discussion?

If there was no attendance requirement, how many of your classes would you attend?

During your corporate or litigation internship did you find the theoretical instruction received in college very useful, useful, somewhat useful, marginally useful or not at all useful?

Which one is a recurring pet peeve at your law school when it comes to faculty?
