One thing many of our entering 1L students are typically curious about is the classroom experience at UNC School of Law. Although the law school classroom environment is certainly not the same as is it was at the undergraduate level, it is not as intimidating as popular culture sometimes portrays it, such as "One L," Scott Turow's iconic memoir of his first year at Harvard Law School.

We asked award-winning UNC School of Law teachers Elizabeth Gibson, Burton Craige Professor of Law, and Joseph Kennedy, Professor of Law, to discuss their teaching philosophy and the first-year experience. Watch this video to learn more about their classroom methods and the importance of teaching at Carolina Law. You'll see that our faculty members are invested in their students' success and are truly engaged in the classroom.

We hope to see you in our classrooms this fall!
