Centre for Legal Education

A group of 13 filled the meeting on 21st February with a stimulating discussion on oral skills (mooting, interviewing, advocacy, conference, negotiation, mediation, presentations). So much so that we didn’t get as far as discussion of assessment of such skills. The latter has now acquired a short slot at the teaching and learning event and JC is collating a selection of assessment criteria from different programmes to inform the debate: quite a lot of people seem to have questions about assessment in this context that we need to spend further time on it.


The group developed ideas about issues, strengths and design in oral skills teaching.
