Extract: Assessments of the fitness for purpose of legal education are many and varied. Both broad and specific reviews have been frequently undertaken in the context of higher education, admission requirements and professional standards, and national productivity. Additionally there have been influential projects on matters that inform the way in which legal education is designed. Within the academy, work on internationalisation of the curriculum for example, has provoked discussion internationally. In the higher education context, education for sustainability and Indigenous perspectives has resonance for legal education. Likewise, the profession is increasingly grappling with issues such as wellness and resilience, and gender, each of which flow on to legal education. The contemporary contexts facing legal education, however, do not stop here.
