Comparison of Learning Modalities

The faculty at Taft Law School recognize that adult students can learn in various ways. In this regard, two completely different learning methods are available to students in their pursuit of legal knowledge.
The telecommunications modality is preferred by students who can’t attend a traditional classroom but benefit from regular and substantive interaction with faculty and classmates. Telecommunication students start courses on fixed dates, submit weekly assignments for faculty evaluation and participate in online discussions. In most courses, class participation can constitute 20% of a course grade.
The independent study modality is preferred by students who, for business or personal reasons, cannot commit to a fixed weekly study schedule. Independent study students are graded based on written examinations.
Under either modality, students study the same material and take the same midterm and final examinations. Both are equally rigorous and require a significant commitment of time.
