Katz Presents on Law School Teaching and Assessment

Legal Educator-in-Residence Howard Katz made two presentations at the Southeastern Association of Law Schools (SEALS) annual conference. As part of the Newer Law Teachers Workshop, Howard spoke about “Teaching Law: The Essentials.” As part of the Prospective Law Teachers Workshop, he met with aspiring candidates to review their CVs.

Professor Katz also was a participant in the discussion group on “How to Assure Effective Formative and Summative Assessment.” He presented his draft article Teaching Legal Analysis Using the “Unified Field Theory”, focusing on how this method of teaching legal analysis in first-year courses (which he has developed with the help of Professor Kevin O’Neill), incorporates formative assessment into daily class discussion.
