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 2014, Elon Law hosted the Second National Symposium on Experiential Education in Law, featuring CELL director Steve Friedland.

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.

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.

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.
