Paper Chase and the Socratic Method of Teaching Law.
Dillon, J. T.
Journal of Legal Education, v30 n4-5 p529-35 1980
It is argued that the Socratic method of teaching law as depicted in the book, movie, and TV series "Paper Chase" is not really the Socratic method at all. The genuine Socratic method and the questioning technique used in "Paper Chase" are examined and their appropriateness and effectiveness as methods for teaching contract law are questioned. (JMD)
