Judge Kimbler Teaching New Judges

I will be teaching at the Ohio Judicial College's New Judges' Orientation next Tuesday. I am teaching on the Ohio Rules of Civil Procedure. I am excited about this assignment because I am going to be using a problem solving approach for this class.

I have developed 18 problems built around selected provisions of Rules 3 through 15. My plan is to have the new judges read the problems, discuss them among themselves, then I lead a discussion on the problem with the whole group.

I recently used this approach with a seminar I taught on hearsay and was very happy with this approach. The feedback I got from the 17 lawyers who attended was very positive.
