The Role of Practice in Legal Education
Legal education is divided into three broad stages: a first academic phase, a second professional training phase, and a third post-admission phase of continuing legal education. English has become an important tool for teaching law in a globalized world and as a common root language for students across borders. There is a trend toward a globalized curriculum. This report sets a framework for comparison of disparate legal education regimes and details the results in two exhaustive charts. It also takes a very close look at the pedagogy of practice and details on a regional basis each country’s approach to experiential or clinical training of law students.
