The author argues that Australian law schools are more bureaucratic and managerialist than those in Canada, the US and the UK. He also contends that there are too many Australian law schools. He then details the bureaucratic constraints in place and points to the bizarre incentives in the Australian system. Legal academics from other Anglo-American jurisdictions would find they had less autonomy in Australia than in their home jurisdiction.
