Professor Daniel M. Filler gives Lecture on the New Dawn of Hands-on Legal Education
On November 4, 2014, the Peking University School of Transnational Law (STL) welcomed Professor Daniel M. Filler, Senior Associate Dean for Academic and Faculty Affairs at Drexel University Thomas R. Kline School of Law. Professor Filler, a criminal law and legal ethics scholar, presented a lecture on “The New Dawn of Hands-on Legal Education,” about the new emphasis in American legal education on the importance of experiential learning. Following the lecture, Professor Filler met with groups of STL students and faculty to learn more about STL’s innovative J.D./J.M. program of study and to share his experience at Drexel, a law school known for its extensive experiential “co-op” programs.
In addition to his faculty and administrative positions at Drexel, Professor Filler is the co-founder of one of the most widely read law professor blogs, The Faculty Lounge, which has twice won awards from the American Bar Association as one of the Top 100 law blogs in the United States. In September, 2014, STL Associate Professor Ray Campbell was invited to be a guest blogger on The Faculty Lounge.
