Legal Education

Reflections and Recommendations

By Aalt Willem Heringa

This book on legal education is based upon many of author Aalt Willem Heringa's experiences as a professor and dean. Heringa has noted that there is relatively little literature and research about legal education and felt it was necessary to discuss the present state. The book focuses on many issues, such as teaching itself, employability, the mission and focus of law schools, the future of law schools in this age of internationalization, student intake, the link with the labor markets, as well as many other issues. One of the conclusions drawn is that law schools will have to seek their own position and niche, and that they will have different roles. The book also focuses on the need for law school deans and leaders to set clear mission statements and strategies and work towards education that provides all the necessary skills and knowledge that students can take with them into their future careers.
