This edited collection offers a critical overview of the major debates in legal education in the history of the Upjohn Lectures, an annual event that draws together legal educators and professionals in the UK to consider the major debates and changes in the field.

Presented in a unique format that reproduces extracts from classic lectures along with a contemporary response from legal education experts, this book both offers a historical overview of how these debates have developed and an up-to-date critical commentary on the state of legal education today. As the full impact of the introduction of university fees and the LETR report are felt in law departments, this collection offers a timely reflection on legal education’s legacy, as well as critical debate on how it will develop in the future.
