Professors receive teaching grant from Taylor Institute
Professors Nickie Nikolaou and Lisa Silver have received a two-year teaching grant from the Taylor Institute for their project "Creating the “Whole Advocate” through experiential learning in the law classroom." The project will identify key features of the Advocacy course that are contributing to student learning, and suggest necessary revisions for future iterations of the course to enrich and enhance student learning and to ensure alignment with the “Whole Advocate/Lawyer” approach in current legal education. A Template for Advocacy Learning in the Classroom will also be created for use across our curriculum, by other law schools (nationally and internationally), and by other professional and non-professional faculties for which advocacy is a core competency.
