Johnson, David W.; Johnson, Roger T.
Update on Law-Related Education, v21 n3 p17,23 Fall 1997
Advocates the use of academic controversies (student research and classroom debate on an issue with clearly defined positions). Identifies three ways that this educates students about civil justice: (1) students learn citizenship skills; (2) provides a procedure for resolving civil justice problems; and (3) increases academic learning.
