Lawyers, learning and the challenge of corruption is designed to clarify our state of knowledge of the pedagogy of this field and create a reference and resource for teaching the generation of lawyers who face the challenge of modern corruption. It develops clear keys to understanding the challenges of an area that is the Wild West of jurisprudence, frequently without workable boundaries of jurisdictional and substantive law.
This is a new and rapidly developing area of learning and practice. As such the book examines the experiential elements of teaching, anticipating the need to address the demands of practice. It presents and applies new research and examines emergent international literature representing many disciplines and different spheres of activity. It also contains material to act as exemplars for the development of authentic case studies and other pedagogical devices.
The authors draw upon the historical antecedents of corruption, including influences such as colonialism, deregulation and globalisation to provide vital background. The book is informed by a specifically selected international consultative group of practitioners and policy to ensure that the analyses are valid and reflect experience in the real world. It is also supported on the website: www.teachinglegalethics.org where complementary materials are provided along with an interactive discussion facility provided for academics and practitioners to discuss and report on their use of the materials.
