The debate surrounding legal education, to which this volume makes a distinguished contribution, rages today as it has not done since the early 1970s when the Ormrod Report made recommendations for the future of legal education. Nearly a quarter of a century later another great review of legaleducation is under way under the auspices of the Lord Chancellor's Advisory Committee on Legal Education and Conduct. Its report is expected in Autumn 1995 and it can be reasonably assumed that changes will follow. It is the purpose of this volume which arises out of a seminar organized by theSociety of Public Teachers of Law held at All Souls College, Oxford, in May 1994, to enrich and influence the debate by expressing of a variety of viewpoints all of which have in common a desire to see legal education which is at once demanding, properly located within the learned tradition ofhumane scholarship and at the same time fitted to the needs of the modern legal profession.
P. B. H. Birks, Regius Professor of Civil Law; Fellow of All Souls College; Honorary Secretary of the SPTL, University of Oxford.
