Legal Education Reform

01 March 2013

PILnet believes that law schools play a critical role in producing socially responsible and public interest-oriented lawyers, who are, in turn, essential to the delivery of justice and the protection of human rights. Around the world, PILnet advances innovative teaching methods, comprehensive curriculum development and excellence in teaching so that law schools more effectively promote ethical values, develop broad analytical and problem-solving skills and provide knowledge of the social effects of the law.

PILnet also seeks to identify, inspire and assist reform-oriented leaders in legal education and to connect them to external constituencies within civil society and the private sector that support and benefit from improvements in legal education. To accelerate the process of reform, PILnet utilizes studies, surveys, scholarly debate and stakeholder consultations to create a more active discourse about identifying and meeting educational needs both within legal academe and in the broader public sphere.
