I have previously posted information about the Australian Law Admissions Consultative Committee review of Academic Requirements. The deadline for submissions to the is 31 March 2015.
The Law Institute of Victoria is seeking views from its members – from the LIV ‘Law In Brief’ circular:
“Law Admissions Consultative Committee: We need your views
The LIV is seeking the views of members on the review, which is being conducted at the request of the Council of Chief Justices. Specifically we would like your views on three broad questions; Does the Priestley 11 require changing? What are employers’ views on the skills graduates obtain at law school – what is working and what is missing? What are the views of law graduates and young lawyers? Send your views to Andrew Tabone at email@example.com by 19 March to enable us to lodge a submission by the deadline of 31 March.”

I’ve written a short post and uploaded a SlideShare over at the Social Media in Legal Education blog – brief comments about using a poll to encourage interactions, plus a walk-through on how to set it up.

The good people at The Law Teacher have published my article about some insights I gleaned from interviews with practitioners. The Law Teacher is an international legal education journal well worth a subscription. Click here to find an online version of my article, Kristoffer Greaves (2015): Is scholarship of teaching and learning in practical legal training a professional responsibility?, The Law Teacher, DOI: 10.1080/03069400.2014.991203. This article is paywalled, but hopefully you can get access to it via your institution’s library.
In précis, during interviews with Australianpractitioners in mid-2013 I used a question about lawyers’ paramount obligations to the court to provoke discussion about institutional and extra-institutional forces affecting scholarship of teaching and learning in institutional . The article is a necessarily brief analysis of interviewees’ responses to the question. The interviews form part of the data collected for my PhD thesis, which I hope to submit for examination around the end of March this year.
Here is my report card for 2014, with reference to my thesis, journal articles, conference presentations, awards, social media (status are cumulative) and other activities…
I am approaching the end-stage with my PhD Thesis, ‘AustralianPractitioners’ Engagements with Scholarship of Teaching and Learning’. The document is at near-final draft with 100,000 words written across twelve chapters and includes 40 figures. Proofing and editing continues, and subject to the comments of my supervisory panel, I anticipate I will notify my intention to submit the thesis for examination sometime before 30 March 2015.
