Zoom'ing Right Along - Cat Moon - Vanderbilt Law School

#HOMEschooled

While the remote work and teaching environment might be new to most law professors, Vanderbilt Law School's Cat Moon has lots of experience. That's not to say she hasn't had her own frustrations, but she's coping better than most. She talks with me about the issues that law professors and law students are going through as all US law schools find themselves to be online schools.

In a survey she gave Vanderbilt students, they pointed out a number of simple issues that are happening as professors teach remotely. Things like not using a microphone (earbuds/microphones), or not facing the right direction while teaching. Granted, these professors are being thrust into a teaching style they may have never experienced. And, they were forced into this within a matter of days. We're all learning, and we all need to give each other a little slack. 

One thing this model does expose, however, is the lack of technology skills that law professors have.  It's something that many of us have pointed out for years, and now we're seeing it in real life. As you'll hear me say over the lifetime of this podcast, "never let an emergency go to waste." The silver lining may be that we finally convince law professors that they absolutely need to be better with technology. 

There is a lot coming down the pike for law schools and the legal industry. The LSAT may be cancelled this summer. Is there going to be a Bar Exam? How are those hiring law students going to react to PASS/FAIL grades? Everyone is anxious about all these changes, and the leaders of the industry need to step up and ease these concerns by facing them and giving these students solid answers. Cat sees this as an opportunity and lists a few things that we could actually benefit.

Remember, we may all be In Seclusion, but we're in this together.
