Centre for Legal Education

The Legal Education Group is a discussion group, organised by the Centre for Legal Education but open to everyone (including, if your line manager says yes, subject administrators). It positively benefits from bringing together people from across the school. The autumn meeting focussed on “What is a solicitor” and was led by John Hodgson.

John began with a historical analysis, then moved on to consider trends in the training of solicitors including the move towards graduatisation of the profession, finishing with discussion of the implications of changes in the regulation of legal education (before and after qualification) for solicitors.
