In 2018, Professor Debra S. Austin called for a Positive Legal Education movement. Unfortunately, the COVID pandemic stalled momentum. However, from the pandemic, law professors rediscovered the Community of Inquiry pedagogical framework. The CoI was important in helping students and teachers maintain a sense of community during isolation. This presentation renews the call for a Positive Legal Education movement and describes how law schools can implement a Community of Inquiry across the curriculum, not just clinical or online courses.
