Legal Education in a World Perspective

Daniel Peñailillo
From the journal Global Jurist


The purpose of this work is to communicate some reflections on the present status of legal education, as well as the innovations on content and methodology which we consider necessary to implement for legal education, that can better contribute to achieve the goals of the Law in current times (preventing that the Law may hinder or delay the fluency and development of social and economic relationships). These appreciations have been influenced by some decades of experience teaching Civil Law (at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels), the observation of programs and methods run by some Latin American universities–and, to a lesser extent, by European and American universities–and by some essays on legal education with different tendencies.
