Legal Pedagogy

About the Series

This series consists of high-quality monographs that explore best practice in the teaching of all areas of law, whilst addressing wider questions about legal education more generally. With contributions from respected academics around the world, this series explores innovative thinking and practice within the context of a generally conservative branch of academia, with the aim of promoting discussion as to how best to teach the various aspects of the law degree and ensure the ongoing validity of the law degree as a whole. Individual books within the series will focus on specific areas of law and will discuss questions such as: could there be more variety in teaching methods and curriculum design? What is the role for more practical courses? Should students be offered law degrees with specialisations, or with an emphasis on the role of law in society?

The books in this series will be of great interest to academics, researchers and postgraduates in the fields of law and education, as well as teachers of law who may be interested in reviving curricula and need a prompt in that direction. In addition, the legal profession, and in particular those who regulate entry into the profession, will find much to interest them within the series.
