Mind the Gaps: Teaching Students to Recognize and Address Flaws in Their Analysis.
Christopher R. Trudeau (Assistant Professor at Thomas M. Cooley Law School in Lansing, Michigan) and his colleague Bradley Charles noticed that poor analysis is one of the main problems that prevent students from becoming effective lawyers. They believe that students often fail to include enough law, which leads to making logical leaps in their analysis. The presentation explored various techniques to teach students to find and fill in gaps in their analysis.
