Howard Katz Presents on Law Teaching

Legal educator-in-residence Howard Katz made several presentations at the Southeastern Association of Law Schools (SEALS) annual conference from July 28 to August 1 in Miramar Beach, Florida. He spoke at two sessions for newer professors about teaching: one on feedback and assessment in large classes, the other on course design and teaching methods. He contributed to a discussion group about reimagining the law school curriculum. In addition to making the case for courses such as public benefits law, public policy analysis, data analysis, and negotiation, he made the larger point that designing the curriculum of the future is not just about adding courses or adding to courses; it involves rethinking the curriculum to do more than one kind of law school early on, so different students can thrive. Howard also was part of a coaching session for teaching candidates who will be going onto the market this coming fall.
