Second Lecture: Contemporary Challenges to Legal Education

Mary Hiscock

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterResearchpeer-review


There are many pressures on and challenges to all the participants in legal education. Some of these are external and come from existing and foreshadowed changes in the legal profession and professional practice. Some come from changes in society at large, social and economic changes. These may be local or global. Some are internal to Universities, as adoption of technology changes methods and resources for teaching. There is also a universal demand to reduce cost from the profession, from society, from students and from universities. On the whole, students have little say in how they might benefit from or model change. Most of the time, they just have to put up with change, or they are frustrated when desired change does not occur. The challenge for lawyers is how to tackle and resolve or, at least, minimise these questions.
