Legal Ethics for the Real World: A Model for Engaging First Year Law Students

  • Suzette Barnaby

Abstract

Although courses in legal ethics are now part of the main stream curriculum in the majority of undergraduate law programs, a perceived lack of ethical orientation among legal practitioners, has led to calls for an even greater emphasis upon ethical education. At the same time, legal educators frequently report that students often fail to engage with the content of courses on legal ethics. This paper outlines an approach to reconceptualising legal ethics which emphasises the links between legal ethics and legal practice. In addition, it describes a model for incorporating this approach to legal ethics into the first year curriculum using an online teaching site.
