Deconstructing "Bistro 24" for a Traditionally Underserved Student Population
Thomas, Charles E.
Journal of Legal Studies Education, v33 n1 p5-22 Win 2016
The "Journal of Legal Studies Education" article, "Step Away from the Syllabus: Engaging Students on the First Day of Legal Environment," encouraged instructors to rethink their approaches to the initial class session. The exercise offers an opportunity to introduce the relevance of the legal environment course within the larger business degree curriculum. This article serves as a refinement, rather than a critique of the Bistro 24 exercise. Part II briefly summarizes the original exercise, as envisioned by Professor Koval. Part III serves as a deconstruction of the exercise's component parts, and introduces the refinements made to meet the needs of the author's largely remedial student population. Part IV provides an overview of the student feedback survey responses conducted from multiple iterations of this exercise with both legal environment and upper division business law courses. Part V concludes with an invitation to other legal environment scholars to employ similar experiments within their own classrooms.
