Kim Krawiec asked some interesting questions about different law schools' "workshop culture" that may have gotten lost in the holiday doldrums. So I thought I'd bring to them to the top of the blog again:
"It made me wonder what sort of experimentation, if any, Lounge readers and their faculties have attempted with their workshops, and with what levels of success. Do most of you have a single, general workshop series, or specialized workshop series? Do you keep question queues or does everyone just chime in when they feel like it? If the latter, are there worries about one or two faculty monopolizing the event? Are there formal rules or any informal norms regarding follow-up questions? Are there any methods that you've implemented with particular success or lack of success? What are the norms about reading the paper in advance of the workshop?"
Seems to me this is an area where we could probably all stand to learn from each other.
