Abstract

Legal pedagogy has changed little over the years. Legal students are
still being taught the fundamentals of their profession in the time-honoured
classroom tradition, resulting in the acquisition of the same
skills and knowledge. This study investigates whether this approach is
still paramount in equipping students with the skills necessary to succeed
in legal practice, or whether a greater focus on practical and ethical skills
would be more beneficial in the current workplace. Further, this paper
briefly examines the relationship between digital technology and the 21 C
learner; how digital technology is being used as a teaching tool in some
progressive institutions; and whether such a shift should be adopted by
more teaching institutions.
