Washington Law Review


James M. Dente


This article will review the case method and the alternatives from the viewpoint of a seasoned-practitioner-turned-law-teacher. I will examine some of the criticisms of the method and offer some observations not heretofore made in the debate. It is hoped that this may help law students better understand the wisdom behind the use of the much maligned case method, which is still used in one form or another by the vast majority of American law professors.
