Leeds Law School calls for academic papers
23 December 2017
Leeds Law School will be hosting a one-day conference next year exploring the impact the Legal Education and Training Review (LETR) has had on teaching - and are appealing for academics to submit papers on their views.
The conference, which is being held on 25 June, will provide the opportunity to reflect on the review, which has been in place for the past five years, and will look towards the future of education.
Dr Jessica Guth, Reader in Leeds Beckett’s Law School, is organising the conference, which will also be attended by the LETR research team.
Suggested topics of papers include:
Who are tomorrow’s lawyers and who should be educating them?
What are law degrees for?
Routes to qualification for solicitors, barristers and legal executives?
Education and training for paralegals
The value of liberal legal education
The impact of LETR and subsequent developments on substantive areas
Impact of LETR and subsequent developments on Law Schools
The Futures of Legal Education and Training.
The deadline for papers is 5pm on Monday 25 January 2018. Anyone wishing to contribute, is asked to email an abstract, of no more than 500 words, to firstname.lastname@example.org, stating three key words that can help group the papers together.
