Lawyers in the Classroom. Bar/School Partnership Programs Series.
White, Charles, Ed.
Most lawyers have never been teachers and may be intimidated by the thought of talking to a class of students in a law-related education program. This handbook provides suggestions on how to set up orientation sessions for lawyers and other law-related resource people as well as tips for presenters, including how to get and keep the students' interest and how to establish and maintain credibility. Suggestions are given for planning and conducting field trips to courtrooms and for other learning experiences both in and out of the classroom. In addition, guidelines for brainstorming and role playing are given and evaluation forms are included for the lawyer or other resource person and for students to fill out following the classroom visit or field trip.
