Traditional lecturing has traditionally been one of the most prevalent methods of instructions in law curricula. This tradition dates back a millennial. The method has also permeated into learning philosophies that stand at odds with this instruction method, such as Problem-Based Learning. In the article it is investigated why lecturing is used so widely, whether there are additional reasons to do so in the legal discipline and whether recent developments – most notably the Sars-COV-2 pandemic – would or should lead to a departure from this instruction method. It is concluded that lectures will probably prevail and that there is a place for this instruction method in Problem-Based Learning even more so in a legal curriculum.
