Abstract

This article looks at an empirical study of the way in which undergraduate law students might acquire substantive legal knowledge by means of role play based participation in drama. Whilst role play is commonly accepted as a means of acquiring skills, it is less often considered as a means of acquiring substantive discipline knowledge. This article explores how the latter might be achieved.
