The future of legal education - a shopping trolley?
Frank Zappa had a point when he said: "If you want to get laid, go to college. If you want an education, go to the library." I'm in the midst of a series of podcasts and blog posts about the future of legal education. Two weeks ago I talked to Baroness Deech, chair of the Bar Standards Board. In the course of our podcast conversation, we touched on the reform of legal education being undertaken by the profession. I asked her what she thought about the agenda of the big vocational law schools and the role of the profession in the academic stage of legal education provided by the universities at degree level.
