Pacific West College of Law

 

 

 

 

 

Pacific West College of Law

Most law schools are premised on the belief that the best method for teaching law is to teach the reasons for legal theory on the national level using the Socratic method. The Socratic method consists of repeated questions to elicit truth assumed to be implicit in all rational beings. Obvious from the definition is the difficulty and complexity of this method of education. In addition, the Socratic method often ignores the organization required for superior performance on subjective and objective examinations as well as the actual practice of law. Non ABA law school students are capable of understanding this type of instruction, but they are often bored with its inherent, abstract, and dogmatic approach.

Massachusetts School of Law at Andover

A significant number of MSL graduates use the abilities developed in law school to advance their careers in government or business. But most of MSL’s graduates choose to practice law, often in their own local communities. The practice of law, especially in your own community, can be a great deal of fun, because lawyers are paid for talking, thinking, planning and writing — abilities which are honed by reforms instituted at MSL. But for the practice of law to be fun, and satisfying, you should enter the field because you want to help people. The fun and the satisfaction accrue mainly to those whose goal is to help others rather than to those whose goal is to make four or five hundred thousand dollars a year. The reforms instituted by MSL give students the intellectual and practical tools needed to assist others — and to be happier persons because they are doing so.
