The Humanizing Legal Education Listserv
The Humanizing Legal Education Listserv, started by Professor Larry Krieger in 1999, originated as a forum to discuss the ways we conduct legal education and the impact those choices may have on the attitudes, values, needs , health, and well-being of law students and lawyers. The listserv consists of an active and vibrant community of legal professionals concerned with matters of interest to members of the Section on Balance in Legal Education.

The volume of messages is generally quite low, but many posts have led to fascinating and enriching interchanges. Some discussions of interest have included:

law student stress and teaching approaches;
law school grading;
1L distress and educational practices; and
the connotation of "average."
