The Future of Legal Education


Chancellor Day Hall Maxwell Cohen Moot Court (NCDH 100), 3644 rue Peel, Montreal, QC, H3A 1W9, CA
Free. RSVP.

McGill's Faculty of Law and Thomson Reuters invite you to a round table discussion focusing on the future of legal education and how to capture the opportunity and address the challenges of a rapidly changing legal profession:

  • What training will the lawyers of the future need to be successful?
  • Are future lawyers being encouraged to think broadly enough about the scope of possibilities that a legal education offers?
  • What are the changing expectations of employers of law graduates?
  • To what extent do those training future lawyers need to evolve?

Our panel will be composed of professionals representing a cross-section of the legal community. They will candidly discuss and debate current issues surrounding the future of legal education. In attendance will be representatives of private practice, in-house, academia, judiciary and the law schools. The event will be followed by a cocktail reception.

Places are limited. Save your seat now for this must-attend event.
