The Law Teacher: The International Journal of Legal Education
Professor Chris Ashford – University of Northumbria, UK
The Law Teacher is a fully-refereed journal concerned with the teaching of law and issues affecting legal education at all academic levels. Whilst it is the journal of the UK-based Association of Law Teachers, both the Association and the journal are international in outlook and contributions from any jurisdiction are welcome in any section of the journal.
Contributions generally address issues of legal education rather than substantive law as such. What falls within the concept of ‘legal education’ is broadly interpreted, and could include any issues which will be of interest to law teachers. The journal is particularly interested in reporting pedagogical developments, properly grounded in theory and effectively researched and analysed, and the results of empirical research into matters of concern to law teachers.
The Law Teacher is read by academics and teachers of law in Schools around the world, and members of the Association of Law Teachers receive copies as part of their membership.
