People who study law at university usually have a pretty clear idea of the kind of future that they would like to create for themselves. They know that legal qualifications can lead to high earnings and allow them to lead the lifestyle that they want (while they’re not working, that is). The trouble is getting there. Historically, you had no choice but to travel to a campus every day, sit through lectures, and then write term papers. It was a traditional – and costly – experience. Furthermore, many universities didn’t offer work experience as part of the course, undermining student’s ability to really grasp the applications of the subject matter. Now, though, that’s all changing, thanks to changes in the way universities go about delivering legal education. The model now isn’t lining students up in rows and lecturing at them for hours at a time. Instead, it’s providing them with opportunities to work alongside firms on the legal issues that they face. With better contextual knowledge, students are in a much better position to impress law firms when they leave higher education. Tech is allowing course organizers to make changes to format too. Many institutions now combine both in-person and online elements to provide a more flexible experience for students who may have part-time job commitments.
