(p.41) 6 The Evolution of Legal Education
Comparative Law as Transnational Law

Simon Chesterman

Oxford University Press

This chapter focuses on the results of changes in legal education across jurisdictions. The transformations identified here have been led first, by the profession, as changes in the way law is practiced have necessitated a change in the way in which it is taught. Such influences are linked to developments in transportation and communication, and the enmeshing of diverse economies embraced by the loose term globalization. A second influence has been the more mobile student population that law schools confront, with immigrants, expatriates, and exchange students making up ever-larger proportions of classes. Third, there has also been an intellectual shift, as those studying the law realized that there was far more to be gained from comparative analysis and, more recently, that something interesting was happening that transcended traditional jurisdictional analysis. These influences have seen legal education move away from a purely local approach and through three broad paradigms: international, transnational, and global approaches to legal education.

Keywords:   legal education, legal profession, comparative analysis, jurisdictional analysis, law schools
