Worried that this might take too much time away from your casebook or teaching? Have no fear: lawyers-gone-professors Way, Wood, and Marsh include all the rich detail from their interesting and complex cases (transactional, litigation) in simple format, equipping you with the questions and model answers you need to have fun with students without recreating the wheel, or even an exercise. Slip seamlessly into "real lawyer" mode as you draw upon their exercises, divided into eight basic issue areas (from adverse possession to partition to zoning) and sliced and diced into accessible parts that you can mix and match to customize the experiential experience. (Don't worry, the authors provide simple tables breaking down the amount of time each part will consume both in and out of class, down to the minute.)
Starting small? Use this book to allow students to explore online real property records or visit eviction court with the tools and tasks that will make property law come alive. Diving deeper, allow students to interview real clients (scripts provided) or review pleadings (simplified and redacted) to explore the Early Lawyering Literacy skills identified by the authors and recognized widely by the ABA and others.
The sky is the limit with this new book, the first of its kind to bring meaningful experiential education opportunities into the 1L class in a way that amplifies traditional core concepts and doesn't disrupt. Join in as property law gets its due on the cutting edge of legal education!
