article description
This Essay accompanies the Fifth Annual Symposium at Creighton University School of Law addressing the rapidly changing legal profession and our not-so-rapidly changing legal education and law school pedagogy. The Symposium's focus on the changing practice of law provides an opportunity to reconsider the woefully incomplete effort by law schools to respond to the challenge of the Carnegie Report and its many preceding critics. Rather than merely pile on, however, this Essay suggests that Jesuit law schools in particular might have something to offer their colleagues-an experiential teaching style grounded in centuries old pedagogy inspired by the founder of the Jesuits, Ignatius Loyola.
