Professor Ariana D. Meyers recently presented at the Southeastern Association of Law Schools (SEALS) conference in Boca Raton, Florida
Professor Meyers presented her forthcoming paper, the enhancement of family law pedagogy in the classroom using visualization to explain the traditional doctrinal concept of equitable division during the Family Law Pedagogy Discussion Group.
The group, invited both doctrinal and clinical professors to discuss the tools and strategies they use in their family law (and related) classrooms. Special focus was paid to building students’ practical lawyering skills, drawing connections from family law to the broader law school curriculum, new approaches to teaching traditional family law topics, methods for incorporating non-traditional topics in family law courses, strategies for incorporating scholarly literature and other critical perspectives on family law, and approaches that bring into the classroom discussion the issues that face families from diverse backgrounds.
