Abstract:

Audiovisual Enhancement of Classroom Teaching: A Primer for Law Professors

Vincent Robert Johnson

37 J. Legal Educ. 97 (1987).

    It is increasingly hard to avoid the idea that audiovisual techniques are appropriate—if not essential—to the contemporary law school classroom.  Audiovisual aids are already widely employed in the practice of law, continuing legal education, and in most fields of higher and professional education.  Yet, what little empirical evidence exists suggests that modern media techniques have had little impact on the traditional law school classroom.  Thus it is relevant to ask whether and how audiovisual media can effectively augment the teaching of standard substantive law courses.

Keywords: legal education, audiovisual aids, law schools, teaching aids, modern media, legal educators, legal professors, electronic media, teaching effectiveness, overhead projection, audiotapes, videotapes, slides.
