This essay was written as a memorial for Professor Beth Eisler, my colleague at the University of Toledo, who passed away far too soon in 2012. In her three-decade-long career in legal education, Professor Eisler shaped the lives of countless students and colleagues at Toledo, Wayne State, and the University of Baltimore and Michigan State University, where she taught as a Visiting Professor. Beth was unique in many ways. As a classroom teacher, she was one of the early adopters of an aggressive, problem-based approach to teaching legal analysis. Professor Eisler's advocacy for and exemplary employment of the problem method, now quite the vogue in legal education, stands as one of her distinctive legacies.
