Benign Socratic

A group of admitted/prospective students and their parents visited my class this morning (for a dose of Daimler v. Bauman and Shaffer v. Heitner). One parent, herself a lawyer in town, came to me after class and said that was the best "benign Socratic" class she had ever seen. I like that phrase better than "modified Socratic," which was the buzzword at the Meat market three years ago as code for "I'm rigorous, but not obnoxious."

But malign Socratic is so much more effective.
