Globally, legal regulators are taking ever greater interest in the regulation of legal education, and particularly the assessment of educational outcomes and standards. The subject is a controversial one for both the profession and the academy.

In this talk Paul Maharg will analyse some of the recent developments in professional legal education in England, drawing conclusions as to the possible future directions of professional education and its assessment in other jurisdictions.

Key topics addressed include:

  • Global challenges and changes in legal education(England, Wales, U.S.A, Canada)
  • Improving professional standards without suppressing innovation in education
  • Implications for licensing examinations in Ontario


  • Paul Maharg, Distinguished Professor of Practice, Osgoode Professional Development
