Abstract

The following contribution builds on an article published in the Journal of Criminal Justice Education, “Prison-Based Education and Its New Pedagogical Perspective” in which I explore how teaching in unconventional environments, such as the prison system, can contribute to the elaboration of new pedagogical methods and, in the process, reveal the diverse responses of marginalized groups to the study of the law. I now wish, through a narrative of my own experience as a law instructor in an American maximal-security prison, to demonstrate how the training of young academics in untraditional environments can provide more diverse teaching methods for traditional law students interested in the study of comparative law. In a nutshell, this chapter shows how the teaching of comparative law in alternative venues helps to develop a more adapted training for future lecturers in order for them to shape a more critical attitude towards law and legal reasoning in traditional law school students.
