Promoting Excellence in Legal Academic Teaching and Research

Legal Education Review (LER) 

The Legal Education Review is an independent, refereed journal. Its objectives are to encourage and disseminate research into legal education and to stimulate discussion debate and experimentation on topics related to legal education.

The Review was established in 1989 with the support of a grant from the Law Foundation of NSW. The Editors of the Review are appointed by the Australasian Law Teachers Association (ALTA). 

ALTA members receive a complimentary electronic copy of each completed volume of the Review as part of their membership. Printed copies may be purchased at the standard subscription rate.

We welcome articles which address any aspect of the nexus between teaching and research within the discipline of law, such as:

  • How can law educators maximise learning outcomes through bringing law and/or education research into the classroom?
  • How can law teachers maximise their research outcomes by conducting research into the pedagogy and practice of law teaching? 
  • How can law educators achieve excellence in supervision of higher degree research students?
  • In an environment where few law academics were trained in socio-legal or empirical research methodologies, does the conduct of educational research and the supervision of non-doctrinal legal research pose particular challenges?

To view the latest volume, all past volumes, and information about submissions and subscriptions, visit the Legal Education Review website.

The LER is now accepting submissions on a rolling basis; it is an open access Journal, with all articles published under an Attribution Non Commercial No Derivatives Creative Commons Licence: CC-BY-NC-ND
