Being asked to talk recently about teaching to non-law school professors caused me to think about some of the successful techniques I have used or seen used in law school teaching. I was concerned, though, that these techniques might not be transferrable to other teachers in other settings. However, the more I thought about it the more I realized that the techniques we use in teaching law students are comparable to, if not identical with, techniques used by any successful teacher. These are the same techniques we all have seen utilized by our best teachers over our many years of schooling. I therefore conclude that everything we need to know about teaching we learned in kindergarten. With that in mind, I recommend the following techniques.
