    Part-time students can present some unique teaching challenges. While they often have professional and life experiences that enrich their understanding of the curriculum, part-time students may struggle to balance academic work and other serious obligations such as full-time employment. In addition, unique scheduling issues may create conflicts around course choice, clinic, externships, networking opportunities, and campus events. What pedagogical strategies might be used to keep students who have worked all day completely engaged in an evening course? How might law schools structure curricular choices to maximize impact for part-time students? What advice should instructors give about meeting experiential requirements or seeking outside legal experience when a student is employed full-time? How might bar preparation differ for a part-time student? The panel will explore these topics and more with an interactive look at innovations, aspirations, and best practices from part-time, evening, and weekend programs around the nation.
