The Center for Legal Innovation at the

Vermont Law School

focuses on the
study and implementation of innovation in the law and in legal education. As a

part of its
work, it seeks to create a free space in which to re
-
envision what legal education can be,
untethered from a fixation on what it now is.


Description:

This eJournal distributes working and accepted paper abstracts which
engage with innovation
in the field of legal education. Legal education is moving from a
century or more of relative stability in form and content to a time of rapid challenge,
innovation, and change. While technology, economic pressures, globalization, and the
changing nature o
f practice and government all have a role in sparking this innovation,
changes in theory and practice are also sweeping through education more generally.
Furthermore, our understanding of the nature of law is developing in ways that challenge
our teaching.

The eJournal INNOVATION IN LEGAL EDUCATION provides a forum for
looking beyond the traditional dialog of legal educators and into areas of real innovation
and change. It will accept working papers, essays, published articles, experimental and
research rep
orts, and other scholarly treatments of topics at the cutting edge of
developments in the teaching and study of law.
