The book, What the Best Law Teachers Do (Harvard University Press, 2013), is the culmination of a four-year study that sought to identify extraordinary law teachers. The study details the attributes, strategies and practices of professors who have a significant, positive and long-term effect on their students. The book was written by law professors Gerald F. Hess of the University of Gonzaga; Sophie M. Sparrow of the University of New Hampshire; and Michael Hunter Schwartz, law dean at the University of Arkansas Little Rock William H. Bowen School of Law. “The book describes how 26 amazingly dedicated and dazzlingly effective law teachers do their work,” Schwartz says. Bricker gave a presentation at the premiere conference on June 27, 2014, in Chicago.
