Many of our colleagues believe the law teaching can be divided into pure doctrine and pure skills. However, I think that may be pure fiction. My job as a Professor of Skills, teaching both doctrinal and skills classes, is to bring my skills teaching into my doctrinal teaching, and my doctrinal teaching into my skills teaching. Today's Exercise Showcase, for me, is an opportunity to take a corporate law case that appears in many business organization case books, and show you how to tackle it from a skills perspective, and then also from a doctrinal perspective. So, we are going to bridge the gap between skills teaching and doctrinal teaching.
