In 1994, Gonzaga Institute for Law Teaching and the Gonzaga Law Review co-sponsored a bibliography that annotated articles on teaching methods used in law schools. The bibliography covered articles published between 1985 and the first half of 1993. This bibliography continues the process of reporting articles that offer practical suggestions on pedagogy. It does not duplicate any of the annotations previously reported and covers a five and-a-half year period, from June 1993 to December 1999. Similarly, this bibliography does not replicate the annotations found in a related bibliography reporting on methods for teaching lawyering skills in the traditional classroom, even though most, if not all, of its 204 entries would be relevant to the present bibliography. Also, the nascent body of articles on teaching law by means of distance education is included elsewhere

Although the majority of articles cited are from United States legal publications, unlike the previous bibliography, we also made a concerted effort to include relevant articles from Canada, Australia, the United Kingdom, and New Zealand since 1990.
