Legal education in Australia has undergone significant changes over the past few years. In addition to technological advances, law students are faced with a more competitive job market and higher skills expectations once they leave university. Law Schools have tried to address these changes by preparing students for their future roles as lawyers in a number of ways, such as skills training through simulation and problem-solving exercises. Clinical legal education (CLE) in particular has played an important role in preparing students for the challenges of the real world. This paper argues that universities should be proactive in establishing partnerships to harness the expertise of industry in developing resilient and well-prepared law graduates. In doing so, law students could be exposed to real-life situations and cases to experience the application of legal theory and doctrine to legal practice situations, in a supportive environment. Additionally, law students can make a valuable contribution, and provide a useful and often much-needed community service through their involvement in Pro Bono legal work undertaken in industry collaborations.
