Event description

Description

Kicking off the new academic year (for us, anyway…) we thought you might wish to join us and contribute to the ongoing debate around the future of legal education. We want to share with you what we know, but, more importantly, we want to know what you know and what you need.

In discussing a topic for this September ‘back-to-school’ session, my colleagues and I mulled over a few law based topics (Data Protection Law changes, Elderly Care & Mental Health issues, Human Rights, Terrorism & further matters surrounding the current, rather uncertain, status of our Nation……), however, the subject that stimulates most current debate here in Lancashire Law School is closer to home……concerns over where the legal profession is heading……

We find ourselves increasingly unclear about how our role in educating future lawyers and other law specialists should develop, and are very eager to engage directly with our stakeholders in determining the needs and wants for the future of legal education. Clearly we are now on a trajectory towards the ‘Super Exam’, and it seems the LPC will soon begin its path to oblivion, but we are keen to find opportunities for seeing the positive outcomes possible.

Whether you are newly qualified (or yet to qualify) and still remember every detail of your training, came along a very different route to legal practice, a seasoned (experienced) practitioner who has already witnessed several changes to the route to qualification, a non-lawyer interested in ensuring a sound legal education for all, or you have responsibility for recruitment and training within your firm, we very much want to hear from you.

Just what will a law graduate look like after 2020? How can you influence the skills and knowledge they will be able to offer, to ensure the sustainability of your staffing needs?


Join us for an informal chat – air your views and influence our offerings for the coming decade…..

The session will be informal but informative. Breakfast will be provided, and a CPD point will be available for all attendees. There is NO CHARGE for these events.
