Teaching and Learning
The Institute for Law Teaching and Learning (ILTL) is committed to serving the needs of full time and adjunct law teachers from the United States and abroad. We believe that these resources contain ideas and insights appropriate for all law teachers:
- The Team-based learning section describes how a learner-centered teaching strategy can fully engage students in mastering course knowledge, skills, and values.
- The Assessment section links to resources useful for evaluating students and provides sample rubrics for many legal subject areas.
