What is jurisCOMpendium?

It is the homepage of "Jurispendium series of law books," which will be published for the teachers and students of newly-established law schools in Korea.
American-style law schools are slated to open in March 2009.
"Jurispendium" is the
trademark of a series of law books which will be published by Professor Park.

What makes jurisCOMpendium so unique?

Jurispendium series of law books are unique in their format.
Each chapter is supposed to consist of:
- Introduction and outline of the chapter;
- Explanatory articles and/or leading cases, domestic or foreign;
- Summary of the chapter; and
- Questions in Socratic method.
As you may figure out, its content is quite similar to that of American casebooks for law students.

Would you explain the Socratic method?

Of course. Let's consult Wikipedia on this topic.
