Preview

This chapter begins by arguing that political economy ultimately determines the content of the law school curriculum, the attitudes and assumptions law students bring to their studies, the judgments and books that find their way onto law school syllabi, and the research agenda of legal academics. It then discusses globalization of the mind and its implications for law and legal education. This is followed by a description of trans-systemic legal education at McGill law school in Montreal.

Keywords: legal education; law school curriculum; globalization; trans-systemtic legal education; McGill law school
