"We are currently witnessing an unprecedented transformation in the legal profession and legal education. The Legal Services Act 2007 and the Legal Aid, Sentencing and Punishment of Offenders Act 2012 have enabled and necessitated dramatic structural changes to the profession, as well as impacting on its ethos and ethicality. The Legal Education and Training Review promises similarly dramatic change to the provision of legal education, reflecting the shifting landscape of both the legal professional market and higher education in general. These transformative changes bring both exciting opportunities and challenges. This edited collection comprises a selection of papers presented at the second conference of CEPLER, Birmingham Law School's Centre for Professional Legal Education and Research. It brings together leading academic scholars, senior figures from professional practice, policymakers and representatives of the regulatory authorities, to reflect on the key issues arising from this transformative moment."--Bloomsbury Publishing.
