The hallmark of University of Wisconsin Law School is its “law in action” approach to teaching, in which students learn not only legal rules, but also why those rules evolved to address social concerns, and how those rules operate in the real world. That’s what makes Wisconsin a different kind of law school. Our Law-in-Action tradition asks students to look beyond the rules to examine the role of law in the world. Technology and active learning can help.
