    Traditional conceptions of the law school classroom center around one faculty member working with a group of students. Given the increasing interdisciplinary nature of legal education as well as increasing specialization both within the academy and among the practicing bar, single-professor courses have started to give way to courses that are co-taught, although the single-professor model still predominates. Law faculty have approached co-teaching in a variety of contexts from integrating practitioners and judges into their courses, to guest lectures by faculty with particular areas of expertise, to fully co-teaching a course either with a colleague on the law faculty or with a colleague from another department in their university. In addition, co-teaching can be found in all types of courses, ranging from required doctrinal courses; to upper-level seminars and electives; to legal writing, clinical, and experiential courses.
    The Section held a virtual business meeting prior to the Annual Meeting.
