This report represents an attempt to respond to the identification of the desideratum of the
introduction of aspirant lawyers to professional ethics. It reports on the findings of an
international survey of law schools and proposes an international resource which will assist
interested colleagues in collaborating in legal ethics education. The project was funded by a
National Teaching Fellowship awarded by the UK Higher Education Academy in 2004.
I brought to the task an interest in providing experiential education through which students
are encouraged to think deeply about ethical issues and gain experience of learning through
conventional classes, simulations and live clinical work on undergraduate and postgraduate
academic law degrees and on the Bar Vocational Course.
