If I could change anything about my 3 years of law school at Northwestern from '69 to '72, I would provide a more open and direct discussion about how students can learn to "think like a lawyer should think". Most students somehow figure this out either by the close of law school or later practicing law, but the standard "hide the ball" approach in the Socratic method may not always be the best teaching method. Explaining from time to time what we were learning or putting it in context might have helped us better organize and understand our studies. I received a great education at Northwestern, but sometimes I think the process could have played out more efficiently and with less confusion with some careful tweaking of the teaching and learning process.
