Welcome to the March issue of the monthly newsletter of the Centre for Professional Legal Education. We have some exciting news this month. We have been approached by Western Sydney University and asked if we would consider taking over the Centre for Legal Education. If you have not heard of the CLE, it was originally established in 1992 by the Law Foundation of New South Wales. In its early years the Centre was extremely active, and engaged in some important and impactful projects, including a number of studies into the career intentions of law students and the career destinations of law graduates (under Christopher Roper), the publication of an annual Legal Education Yearbook, the establishment of the New South Wales Legal Education Conference, and the creation of a small specialist library collection devoted to legal education. In the last few years the Centre has been relatively quiet, its activity largely limited to publication of the Legal Education Digest.
