Abstract

Teaching and assessing students are the most essential duties of a teacher. He does these duties methodically. This Paper compares and contrasts the old and new methods of teaching and assessing students at the Nigerian Law School. It does not cover grading, externship programme, and mock trials. It aims at sharing practical experience devoid of theories of teaching methods. The research method is mainly descriptive; empirical and doctrinal research methods are partly used, in collating and analysing relevant materials such as learned articles, textbooks, statutes, and interviews. Personal experiences play significant roles in the research as the authors are former students of the Nigerian Law School, and now teachers in the same institution. The Paper concludes that the present student-centred methods of teaching and assessing students at the Nigerian Law School are more effective than the old teacher-centred methods. It, therefore, recommends the continuation of, and improvement of the new teaching and assessment methods.
