Learn more about the benefits of ALT membership
The ALT is a vibrant, welcoming and inclusive community of academics, professionals and practitioners engaged in legal education across countries. Our members support legal learning in schools, colleges, universities and professional sectors, on campus, face-to-face and online. Our aim is to inspire and celebrate excellence in the teaching of law, and to share the understanding and practice of legal learning.
Our members receive copies of our journal, The Law Teacher: the international Journal of Legal Education, plus access to the electronic journal archive and articles published online first; a fortnightly e-bulletin of news and events; a discounted annual conference rate; and access to our grants and awards schemes. The Association also arranges a series of one day conferences and events, the Annual Lord Upjohn Lecture, and responds to a range of policy and regulatory issues on behalf of our members.
Ms. Caroline Strevens, Chair of the Association of Law Teachers
We’re happy to announce that our Annual Conference in 2021 will take place at Aston University in Birmingham. Further information and the call for papers will be issued in the summer.
We are sorry we had to cancel our 2020 conference due to the Coronavirus outbreak. We were very much looking forward to seeing all delegates in Stirling and are disappointed to have to miss such a great chance of catching up with people and learning about what everyone is doing. We hope you are all keeping well and safe and look forward to putting together a calendar of events as soon as we are safely able to do so again.
In the meantime check out the blog posts outlining some of the work that would have been presented in Stirling.
