Abstract: On April 16, 2008, the author received the UCLA School of Law's Rutter Award for Excellence in Teaching. This essay consists of a revised and extended version of the remarks he gave on that occasion. In it, he addresses his progression from frustrated Socratic teacher to happy lecturer and his aspirations for incorporating new technologies into his teaching. He also reflects on the subject of his teaching - the American corporation - and argues that being a business lawyer is a very real form of public interest lawyering.

Keywords: Socratic method, legal education, public interest law
