This article, for a Chinese law journal, explores the benefits of an integrated legal education, one that combines the best aspects of traditional doctrinal courses, lawyering skills courses, and clinical skills courses. After discussing the objectives of legal education, the article turns to learning theory, relying on Bloom’s Taxonomy, Frank Bloch’s work on andragogy, and Binder and Bergman’s explanation of deep transfer. There are obstacles to integrated legal education in China, but those obstacles can be overcome.
