No 1L Left Behind: Tailoring IRAC Instruction to Various Learning Styles

Document Type


Publication Date



Certain first-year law students grasp the organizational paradigm (IRAC, CREAC, FORAC, ect.) very quickly, while others resist it long into their first semester (and sometimes their first year) of law school. The author describes her effort to reach every student, by deliberately teaching the paradigm to each learning style, rather than merely creating exercises that use a variety of teaching methodologies.
