Instructional Designand Strategy for Legal Practice

T. Ninomiya and S. Teramoto

Abstract—An experienced instructional designer and a legal professional jointly designed an Instructional Curriculum Map (“ICM”) and it’s rubrics for legal practice consisting of three parts: 1) to recognize social problems; 2) to create rules; and 3) to apply and amend/interpret such created rules. The learners highly evaluated the course and learners’ skill levels increased as a result of taking the course implementing the ICM, although the necessity of improvements to the administrative aspects thereof are suggested by specialists. However, through analysis, it was concluded that the course could be improved if the following changes were made, namely, 1) learners are enrolled on a pre-program to enable them to acquire the skills to think logically, and 2) redundant explanations or multiple questions are avoided when a learner fails to progress and instead the dialogue is repeated when a learner fails to progress.

Index Terms—Instructional design, layout of argument, learning strategy, legal education.
