COLOMA CORREA, Rodrigo. El ocaso del profesor Binns: Un ensayo acerca de la enseñanza del derecho en Chile. Ius et Praxis [online]. 2005, vol.11, n.1, pp.133-172. ISSN 0718-0012.

The traditional way of teaching law in Chile presents grave deficiencies which are periodically analyzed by different authors. In this article, those deficiencies are related to the curricula, the teaching methodology and the mechanisms for assessing learning. Once the scenario is set, the reasons for the rather perplexing persistence of obsolete pedagogical practices are examined, in light of the competences to be expected of a law graduate. Aside from arguments such us the lack of a new educational model to replace the one in use, it is suggested that the resistance to adopt a new model is related to the idea that students are to be instructed, rather than educated. It is important to keep in mind that future lawyers ought to be prepared to work in a changing society. This implies that they must have self-learning capacity besides the development of certain competencies which go beyond rote learning. New ways of approaching the learning process are suggested that aim at getting the most out of student potential, which require that students be seen as persons capable of constructing knowledge and responsible for that already acquired.
