    (Not) Making the Grade: Responding with resiliency to law school; how to nurture a growth mindset. The pressure of law school can make many law students feel so exhausted and uncertain that, regardless of how well they do academically, they still feel like failures or imposters whose demise must be just around the corner. The science of positive psychology has found that teaching resilience skills can help people effectively respond to stress and bounce back from setbacks. One way that science has found to enhance resilience is through the “growth mindset” framework. Mindsets relate to our belief about ability and potential. Growth mindset students view setbacks as only information about their current progress—not a reflection on their self-worth, intelligence, or ability. Research has linked the growth mindset with significant benefits: Students’ mindsets have a direct influence on their grades as well as their psychological health and resilience. This webinar will teach law students about how to enhance their resilience by developing a growth mindset.

            This video is part of a video collection from the Igniting Law Teaching, hosted by LegalED at American University Washington College of Law. Responding to the calls for legal education reform, the conference -- the first of its kind -- created a forum for professors experimenting with cutting edge technologies and techniques in law teaching with the goal of spreading their ideas to the broader community. The talks were modeled on TEDx Talks, with each speaker on stage alone, giving a well scripted and performed talk about an aspect of law school pedagogy. The goal of LegalED is to curate a growing collection of short, 10-minute videos on law school-related pedagogy that will inspire innovation and experimentation by law professors to bring more active learning and practical skills training into the law school curriculum. This videos, and others like it, are available on LegalED, a website developed by a community of law professors interested in using online technologies to facilitate more active, problem-based learning in the classroom, in addition to more assessment and feedback.

                      Is Advocacy an inate skill or can it be taught? How might we teach it: http://www.gresham.ac.uk/lectures-and-events/advocacy-as-if-the-person-represented-or-for-the-person-represented UK lawyers used to think that advocacy was a God--given art. In the last 20 years -- not more - they have discovered how to train advocacy, applying skills acquired from jurisdictions around the world. Analysis of how advocacy really works benefits from looking back at earlier periods, and then looking forward to today and beyond asking whether advocacy is for establishing the truth and whether the advocate is as if the person represented or simply advocating to win on the client's behalf at almost any cost. This lecture may include practical demonstrations of examples of advocacy and may involve active engagement with the audience -- if willing! The transcript and downloadable versions of the lecture are available from the Gresham College website: http://www.gresham.ac.uk/lectures-and-events/advocacy-as-if-the-person-represented-or-for-the-person-represented Gresham College has been giving free public lectures since 1597. This tradition continues today with all of our five or so public lectures a week being made available for free download from our website. There are currently over 1,500 lectures free to access or download from the website.
