Professor Sally Kift
Associate Professor Kate Galloway
Legal education research in Australia faces many challenges. In an age of digital disruption, the legal profession and legal education itself are rapidly changing, and our student cohort is diversifying. This produces unprecedented opportunities and need for high quality legal education research and scholarship. At the same time, the environment for funding support for legal education researchhas become uncertain following the demise of previously available research funding sources. This workshop, featuring leading Australian legal education researchers Professor Sally Kift, Associate Professor Kate Galloway and members of the Griffith Law Futures Centre will discuss both the challenges and the opportunities in the future of legal education research in Australia.
