At Drexel, we are certainly making an effort to teach many of our "doctrinal" courses with a practice flavor. Oral arguments and small groups are recurring parts of the first year curriculum. We teach a variety of upper level courses through the lens of a "drafting approach." And probably most importantly, our faculty debates and discusses these pedagogical choices all the time. That said, the economic realities of a new law school - and indeed, any private law school lacking an enormous endowment - make it hard to tilt too heavily to small classes. Perhaps state subsidies to new schools in NY will make such creative, useful and pricey classes more feasible. But I'm not holding my breath.
