EWMI/PROLoG Supports Improved Teaching Methodology for Introduction to Law Course

11 August 2017 Participants work on legal analysis exercise

On July 24-25, in the framework of its EWMI/PROLoG grant, Free University organized a two-day workshop for law professors who teach “Introduction to Law” courses at Georgian universities. Seven professors from Free University, ILIA State University and Caucasus University attended the workshop, which served as a forum for discussing the key issues regarding teaching methodology of the course. The “Introduction to Law” course is taught at all Georgian universities for entry-level students, and serves to prepare students for their further legal studies.

Professor Rory Bahadur from Washburn University School of Law (USA) shared his experience on identifying teaching objectives and outcomes, as well as the importance of using active and multimodal teaching methodology.

As a result of the workshop participating professors identified four major topics (rule of law, human rights, etc.) for further development. The professors also committed to work on the selected topics and prepare a detailed outline and reading materials on those topics by the end of September. A second workshop will be organized by the end of this year, where participants will discuss the prepared materials and start developing specific lesson plans and interactive exercises using active teaching methodologies.
