Professor Kingsfield was one of the most highly regarded professors in the whole institution. It seemed as if he had perfected the craft of conveying knowledge to his students. “How many other professors could so exactly delineate the subject, and so completely dominate class, that no small measure of the students’ independent interest would vary the progress?” It seems like Kingsfield was a true expert in his craft and with his perfection it revealed he had been at this a while. He displayed his craft by giving lechers that were referred to as divine by his students.
Precision is exactly how he went about lecturing to his students. Any time he wanted to lead his lesson in the right direction he knew exactly whose name to call on. Sometimes this even meant questioning people who he knew came unprepared but sometimes the student’s mistakes can help make a point to cement another bit of knowledge. This efficient learning environment that Kingsfield was perfect Hart and exactly what he needed to challenge himself in his first year at law school. Without Kingsfield for Hart to look up to as a role model it would have definitely produced different outcomes between Hart and his fellow law students and also his love life.
