This volume arises out of a seminar on the future of legal education, organized by the Society of Public Teachers of Law and held at All Souls College, Oxford, in May 1994.

The debate surrounding legal education, to which this volume makes a contribution, rages today in the UK as a review gets under way under the auspices of the Lord Chancellor's Advisory Committee on Legal Education and Conduct.

It is the purpose of this volume to enrich and influence the debate by following the expression of a variety of viewpoints all of which have in common a desire to see legal education which is at once demanding, properly located within the learned tradition of humane scholarship and at the same time fitted to the needs of the modern legal profession.
