Millennials, Deliberate Learning, Motivation, Resilience, And Law Students

Kim Kass (Valparaiso), Millennials, Deliberate Learning, Motivation and Resilience:

Law school faculty and staff frequently engage in conversations about the challenges of teaching the millennial generation. The millennial generation will continue to fill law school seats for the next several years. Many of these students have had much different educational and life experiences than the law faculty who have been tasked with teaching them.

As such, as educators, we have to adjust our teaching in order to meet the needs of this generation of law students.

I don't think we should extract lessons about an entire generation from the experience of those who teach students in the bottom decile, and who historically were never law students and who should never have been admitted to any law school.

Furthermore, Valparaiso law is no longer accepting incoming students, so it looks like the author needn't worry about it anymore.
