Episode 37: Reinvent Legal Business Series 2: Disrupting Legal Education
What would happen if we disrupted legal education? Would law degrees become affordable? Could learning the law become an interactive, immersive, and holistic experience? Could things like digital literacy, agility, curiosity, creativity, problem solving, business acumen, EI, and relationship building...the tech and human bits...become critical graduate attributes in every law school? Would HOW law schools teach matter as much and WHAT they taught? Would legal educators need to acquire different skills? Would legal regulators and regulation need to change?
In this podcast, Terri Mottershead, Executive Director, Centre for Legal Innovation (Australia, New Zealand and Asia-Pacific), facilitated an international panel of legal educators from Australia and the USA who considered these questions and more:
- Mitchell Adams, Lecturer, LLB Course Director, Swinburne Law School, Swinburne University of Technology (Australia)
- Ann-Maree David, Executive Director, The College of Law Queensland (Australia)
- Tania Leiman, Associate Professor and Dean of Law, Flinders University (Australia)
- Michele R. Pistone, Professor of Law, Villanova University, Charles Widger School of Law (USA)
Thanks so much Mitchell, Ann-Maree, Tania, and Michele - a wonderful discussion which, no doubt, will be the first of many more to come!
