As a part of the University of Waikato’s Faculty of Law 25th anniversary lecture series, Professor Margaret Wilson will give a talk dedicated to teaching and researching law in its social context – the third founding principle of Waikato’s Faculty of Law.
The founding Dean of the then School of Law
will review and reflect on what was at the time a revolutionary approach to teaching and researching law in New Zealand. Professor Wilson will examine the reasons and rationales as well as challenges to implementing this innovative approach to preparing the next generation of lawyers. She will reflect on the unique character of the law school, its integrity and commitment to providing its own distinctive approach to legal education – and in turn answers her question, is the teaching of law in context still relevant today?
Date: Thursday, 8 March
Venue: Te Whare Tapere Iti, Gallagher Academy of Performing Arts, University of Waikato, Hamilton
