Legal Education Review
The Legal Education Review is an independent, refereed journal. Its objectives are to encourage and disseminate research into legal education and to stimulate discussion debate and experimentation on topics related to legal education.
The Review was established in 1989 with the support of a grant from the Law Foundation of NSW. The Editors of the Review are appointed by the Australasian Law Teachers Association (ALTA).
ALTA members receive an electronic copy of the Review as part of their membership. Members also receive a generous discount to purchase a hard copy of the Review.
Submissions for Volume 22 closed on 31 May April 2012.
Issue 1 will be a General Issue. We welcome research articles on current issues in legal education from all jurisdictions.
Issue 2 will be a Special Issue entitled ‘The Teaching-Research Nexus in Law: Opportunities and Challenges’. We welcome articles that address any aspect of the nexus between teaching and research within the discipline of law, such as:
How can law educators maximise learning outcomes through bringing law and/or education research into the classroom?
How can law teachers maximise their research outcomes by conducting research into the pedagogy and practice of law teaching?
How can law educators achieve excellence in supervision of higher degree research students?
In an environment where few law academics were trained in socio-legal or empirical research methodologies, does the conduct of educational research and the supervision of non-doctrinal legal research pose particular challenges?
