Welcome to the Association of Law Teachers
Passionate about legal learning
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.
Collaboration with the OCR
The ALT collaborates with the OCR, a leading UK awarding body that provides qualifications which engage people of all ages and abilities at school, college, in work or through part-time learning programmes. The ALT was heavily involved in the development of the subject content for new AS and A level Law. The OCR hosts an annual conference for A level law teachers in association with the ALT, and the 2016 OCR/ALT conference was held at the UK Supreme Court.
