Quoted in Carel Stolker, ‘Rethinking the Law School’
According to a British survey among ﬁrst‐year law students, the word that best reﬂects the students’ general attitude is ‘disengaged’. This disengagement is caused particularly by the lack of human connection in almost every educational practice, from teaching methods to our formal assessments. There is extraordinarily little formal human interaction in our ﬁrst year.
This is a business model. Just not one you would want to emulate. At least Stolker’s home institution, Leiden, has an excuse.
