Abstract

[Extract] What is a lawyer? What do we expect from legal education? What is the connection between the two? Education in the law has been caught for centuries in cycles that alternately prioritise academic theory and focus on practical skills. (In Australia we are now tipping towards the latter.) For all this however, perhaps we remain unclear on just what it means to be a lawyer and what is the purpose of legal education. David Howarth seeks to answer these questions using the analogy of engineering. In doing so, he provides an interesting and useful account of the lawyer and their profession.
