Center for Engaged Learning in the Law


The Center for Engaged Learning in the Law (CELL) works with all Elon law faculty, faculty from other schools, students, law school administrators, and practitioners to explore how learning can be improved in law schools.

In the 2009-2010 academic year, CELL cooperated with the Institute of Law Teaching at Gonzaga to sponsor a Teaching Law for Engaged Learning conference. The conference, held at Elon Law, welcomed approximately fifty participants from across the country. Click here for details.

CELL regularly brings in speakers and presents programs at Elon Law related to teaching and scholarship development for the benefit of faculty at the law school and others interested in innovation in legal education.

CELL also publishes a blog about teaching and learning in law schools, and offers resources for law students to benefit their study of the law.

The Center’s director is Steve Friedland, a professor of law at Elon who is nationally known for his work to improve the quality of law teaching.
