Welcome to the first CPLE newsletter for 2017. As the Centre begins its second year of operation, there is certainly a lot going on. Our academic members continue to produce high quality scholarship into legal education, and we will shortly circulate a report setting out the many journal articles, monographs and conference papers produced by CPLE members in 2016. Kate Galloway and I have started planning a legal education ‘mega-project’ – made up of multiple sub-projects – looking at the impact of digital disruption upon the way the traditional core of the law curriculum (contract law, tort law, criminal law, etc) is being, can be and should be taught, and we will soon be calling for expressions of interest in joining that enormous project. Our PLT team lead by Hugh Zillmann has welcomed our latest cohort of enthusiastic students to the PLT program, and a major review of the program is now underway.
