What are the education and training needs of tomorrow's lawyers? And how can those needs best be met?
The Centre for Professional Legal Education (CPLE) is a community of legal educators, researchers, practitioners and administrators who collaborate in defining, understanding and promoting best practice in the teaching of law.
The work of the Centre has a particular emphasis upon the changing nature of professional legal education and training in the context of an internationalised, transformed and technology-enhanced legal services sector.
Research and scholarship
The CPLE focuses on three research priorities:
- the impact of emergent technologies on law, legal education and legal services (View project)
- professional identity formation in law students (View Wellness for Law Forum 2019)
- globalisation of legal education and practice (View Professor William van Caenegem's books - The Internationalisation of Legal Education and The Internationalisation of Legal Education: The Future Practice of Law)
