This seminar for excellence in teaching is a custom-made introductory course in university teaching for CEU Legal Studies doctoral students. It is designed specifically to address the needs of preparation for Teaching Assistantship that is expected of the students in the beginning of next academic year (and future teaching duties). In putting this seminar together, we adapted selected core sessions of our longer 12-week foundational course “Teaching in Higher Education: Scholarship, Reflection and Innovation," and enhanced them through a consideration of legal education as an academic domain and a context for professional education.
