dc.description.abstract Law classes require different strategies than undergraduate classes because of format, content, and pace differences. Law professors rarely lecture because they expect students to understand basic concepts during class preparation. They may use the Socratic Method of questioning to reveal legal analysis and nuances. Professors also tend to cover more material quickly. As a result of this analysis, a student will immediately have a better idea of the class format that will be followed, the expectations for student preparation, the likely questions to be asked, supplemental formats used by the professor, and the keywords signifying important points. Most professors follow a pattern in their class format and their expectations for student participation. Each professor will have a personal style of teaching reflected in these patterns. Savvy class observation and analysis can help students use these patterns to their advantage. en_US
