Detroit Mercy Law’s annual Review Symposium set for March 8

Detroit Mercy Law Review hosts its 108th annual symposium, this year titled “Law School 101: An Exploration of Legal Pedagogy,” on Friday, March 8 from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the Riverfront Campus. A reception in the atrium immediately follows the symposium.

The Law Review welcomes legal professionals, academics, scholars, practitioners, and other stakeholders from across the country to discuss topics involving legal pedagogy.

Legal pedagogy refers to the study and practice of teaching in law school. The practical side of teaching law—such as lesson planning, course design, and assessment methods—as well as the theoretical side, are both important aspects of legal pedagogy.

Effective legal pedagogy seeks to equip students with the knowledge, skills, and ethical framework necessary to succeed in the modern legal field. This includes developing critical thinking and problem-solving abilities, as well as an appreciation for the importance of justice and fairness in the legal system.

Registration for the event closes Thursday, March 7 at 5 p.m. Visit the Law Review Symposium website for more information about the panel sessions, schedule of events, speakers and more.
