Title:Legal education in Zambia and the challenge of internationalisation and development
Author:Ndulo, MunaISNI
Periodical:Zambia Law Journal
Geographic terms:Africa
Subjects:legal education
curriculum development
Abstract:Legal education in Zambia is in need of reform in order to meet the challenges of practising law in a gloablized world and the complexity and multidisciplinary dimension of legal problems. The author discusses the challenges of internationalization and globalization to legal education, the approaches to curriculum reform in legal education in Africa, the colonial heritage and postindependence arrangements for legal education, the capacity of African States such as Zambia to implement the reforms that are necessary in legal education in order to be able to produce lawyers who are prepared to meet the challenges of globalization, and the role of technology in legal education and research. To effectively internationalize their curriculums, African law schools have to address two problems: the availability of teaching materials and the retention of highly trained law teachers.
