Professor Mika Publishes on Obergefell, Storytelling, and Legal Writing Pedagogy

Professor Karin Mika has published an article titled Obergefell v. Hodges—and the Use of Oral Argument and Storytelling to Reinforce Competencies in the Legal Writing Classroom. The article describes how having first year students listen to Supreme Court arguments on meaningful contemporary legal issues reinforces skills learned in Legal Writing and humanizes the otherwise mundane task of learning legal analysis. The article also references how the background “human” stories that brought litigants to the courtroom increases empathy.

The citation is: Karin Mika, Obergefell v. Hodges—and the Use of Oral Argument and Storytelling to Reinforce Competencies in the Legal Writing Classroom, 29 Persps. 36 (2022).
