This book on Legal Education was written based upon many of the author's experiences as professor and dean. The author noted that there is relatively few literature and research about legal education and felt it was necessary to discuss legal education in present times. The book focuses on many issues such as teaching itself, employability, mission and focus of law schools, the future of law schools in this age of internationalisation, student intake, the link with the labour markets and many other issues. One of the conclusions is that law schools will have to seek their own position and niche and that law schools will have different roles. This book also focuses on the need for law school deans and leaders to set clear missions and strategies and work towards education with all the necessary skills and knowledge, which the students can take with them far into the 21st century. No teaching as we did for many years, but analysing what lies ahead and what is needed for future careers.
