Abstract

The IACL accepted the joint recommendation of the Reporters that we produce a single General Report on the topic of Internationalisation of Legal Education ("IOLE"). We considered this appropriate given the nature of the topic, which is not one of substantive law. Despite the distinction made by Max Weber a century ago between two main systems of legal education (the English apprenticeship system and the German university model) there is today little empirical evidence to suggest that there is a remaining chasm. Any remaining differences appear to be ones more of degree and of conventional perception.
