This book presents an investigation of legal education; some of its historical episodes, its contemporary situation in the UK and US, and its alternative futures. It analyses the tradition, taking a challenging view of legal education generally, prosing that educational theory is a key element of jurisprudential inquiry; and that the differing cultures of educational research in the UK and in the US means there is much that each can learn from each other's traditions and research.

With legal educators increasingly required to think about legal education and knowledge in substantially different ways than they have done in the past, this book charts the significant transitions which legal education in universities and the profession is undergoing

The content of the book is exemplified by a detailed companion website providing an invaluable interactive resource for academics and professionals with an interest in legal education, and the use of ICT in the law school.
