Abstract
Legal education, including legal ethics teaching, must confront the current crisis in the legal profession and adapt to a rapidly changing future;
Works best to put experiential learning first, using role plays, simulation, followed by reflective discussion/analysis/writing;
Supplemented with short readings that provide some historical context; and
Key is teaching creative problem solving in all its dimensions.
