Title:Time for change: observations on teaching methods in legal education at the University of Zimbabwe
Author:Lambiris, M.A.K.
Periodical:The Zimbabwe Law Journal
Geographic term:Zimbabwe
Subject:legal education
Abstract:Legal education at the University of Zimbabwe has up to now been based on the traditional English system of lectures and tUtorials, each student originally receiving one tutorial a week in each subject, the tutorial lasting an hour and being attended by not more than six students. The increase in student numbers has made it progressively more difficult to keep to this pattern, and has led lecturers into a number of experiments designed to maintain an acceptable standard of teaching de spite the larger classes. The present author, lecturer in law at the University of Zimbabwe, explains how he has approached the problem by adapting some of the thinking behind the American case-book system, thereby replacing the traditional lecture in a way that has made possible a form of open-book examination.
