Ideas:
“  What is evident is that debates about where we draw the line between right and wrong - or lawful and unlawful - or about doctrinal versus contextual approaches to teaching law have evolved in multifarious ways, through both the practices of academics but also the social changes observable in different parts of the world. Today's academics, just like today's law, must therefore be agile, learning to adapt to the dynamism and telescopic evolution that is evident in the present age: this means investigating the future of law as much as it means problematising the future of legal education.  ”
