Conference Description
The workshop explored the funding of a community of practice on teaching legal ethics, the development of the International Forum on Teaching Legal Ethics (www.teachinglegalethics.org) and three innovative ideas for teaching ethics at different stages of students’ legal learning. These include contributions to programmes designed for aspirant paralegals, explorations of the use of the judicial oath as a guide to learning and working with a research report into character strengths and responses to ethical dilemmas to develop ethical comprehension. These make a contribution to our developing understanding of how we might best respond to the LETR recommendations 6 and 7 on professional ethics.
Proposals to develop funding for a UK community of practice concerned with teaching legal ethics were prepared and are attached.
