The Erasmus School of Law has implemented problem-based learning (PBL). PBL is an educational method in which students work on authentic problems in small groups. PBL has been a topic of research for many years, but its effects have often been researched in medical education. In this dissertation, the influence of PBL on students study processes and outcomes are investigated at the Erasmus School of Law. The studies in this dissertation focus on study processes like motivation and study strategies. The studies on study outcomes are focused on performance and graduation rates.
