“Although we tell new law students that law school is different and that law school is hard, many new law students don’t appreciate what we are saying. Think about it this way: ‘The first year of law school is boot camp for your brain'." 

David Raeker-Jordan is dedicated to improving students’ learning experiences through pedagogical innovation. Whether through the use of team-based learning, metacognitive reflection, or incorporating pedagogical best-practices into his course design, Professor Raeker-Jordan strives to create a classroom designed to maximize learning and create self-motivated learners.

Professor Raeker-Jordan teaches courses related to legal methods, including Legal Methods I and II, Legal Methods III-Contract Drafting, Legal Methods III-Advanced Legal Analysis, and Intensive Legal Analysis. Professor Raeker-Jordan also coordinates the Fundamentals of the Bar Exam course and is the faculty advisor for the Moot Court Honor Society.
