Weekly Legal Education Roundup

Comment:  A couple of the above articles mention that FIU again scored the highest on the Florida bar exam.  They have done this too many times for it to be a coincidence or luck.  The answer to FIU's success is that it uses scientifically-proven methods of teaching and learning.  See Louis N. Schulze, Using Science to Build Better Learners: One School's Successful Efforts to Raise Its Bar Passage Rates in an Era of Decline.  I and a few others have been advocating these approaches for several years.  (E.g., E. Scott Fruehwald,  How to Help Students from Disadvantaged Backgrounds Succeed in Law School (2013); Michael Hunter Schwartz, Teaching Law Students to Be Self-Regulated Learners, 2003 MICH. ST. DCL L. REV. 447).  If FIU can do it, any law school can do it.  Why aren't they?
