Innovative Methodology of Teaching Legal Studies

Nataliia Zabarna, Nataliya Kovda

Abstract

The article deals with current methods of teaching legal studies. Particular attention is paid to innovative methodology and learning disciplines at law faculties. It is substantiated that the following methods are inherent in the creative technique: analysis of critical situations; «brainstorming»; Socratic method; business (role) game; «taking a position»; commenting, evaluation (or self-evaluation) of participants’ actions; master classes; project method; modelling; «training ground»; work in small groups; method of a business trip, etc. Innovative methods arise from the needs of society in the development of jurisprudence and correspond to its nature and level of activity in a given period; these are new perspective tendencies, processes and approaches in the development of modern higher education. The distinction between innovative and classical methods is made, the possibilities of conducting different types of classes with the use of other methods are discussed. It is established that the transition to the methods inherent in innovative methods involves a combination of practical, educational and research functions in the educational process, which helps to resolve the contradiction between the knowledge provided by the university and the requirements of real life.
