Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

The Intersection of Andragogy and Courtroom Practice
by Shostak, Grant, Ed.D., Lindenwood University, 2019, 128; 22623083
Abstract (Summary)

Learning takes place not only in a traditional classroom setting, but in a plethora of avenues outside of the lecture hall. Learning paradigms like life-long learning and Andragogy, the teaching of adults, have been used by adult educators for fields such as education, finance, accounting, law enforcement, nursing, technology, and many others. A review of the existing literature has revealed an absence of the application of andragogy to the courtroom setting. This paper investigates and discusses the andragogical orientation of successful trial lawyers in Missouri. This study has shown that successful trial lawyers have adapted and share particular principles of andragogy for use in the courtroom setting. In particular, this study investigated the winners of the Missouri Bar Foundation’s Lon O. Hocker Award (n.d.) for trial excellence to quantify their andragogical orientation.
