Event description

Description

Legal education has developed enormously in recent years. An increase in law schools and law students, more education oriented regulation and an increased understanding of the professional nature of teaching have led to a growth in legal education publications.
This conference seeks to interrogate the purpose and the power of that body of scholarship. Is scholarship in legal education a subset of legal scholarship, or of educational scholarship, or is it sui generis? To whom is it speaking and what is it seeking to achieve – to convince legal academics to think differently about law, or about their practice as teachers of law, or simply to help them become more effective law teachers? Is it rigorous enough? Does it have practical value, and clear applicability in the legal classroom? Can anyone do it? Does being a law teacher give you instant access and insight into legal education scholarship? How do we know what goes on in law classrooms let alone the minds of law students as they make that slow transition to ‘thinking like a lawyer’?
