Smith, Don C. (2007) Transatlantic Perspectives on Teaching the European Union - Teaching EU Law and Policy: Comparing On-site vs. On-line Teaching Approaches and Components. In: UNSPECIFIED, Montreal, Canada. (Unpublished)
American legal education has historically been dominated by lectures and the use of the Socratic method. However, with the advent of more pervasive and powerful technology-based tools such as personal computers and the internet, some law schools are offering courses in an on-line setting. The University of Denver Sturm College of Law, which offers a course in “European Law & Policy” in an on-site as well as on-line setting, is one of the leaders in using technology to create student-centered learning experiences. This paper considers on-line learning in the context of legal education, assesses and compares the on-line versus on-site approach, and provides a list of lessons learned.
