In this article we aim to consider the aspect of higher education in law in the perspective of ‘educology’. Legal educology thus, as a section of the general field of educology, has to comply to the general frameworks of higher education. However, it is also a very much unique science of education requiring special approaches to teaching, which are not always coherent with the general models. In this paper we linger on some aspects of the configuration of these two modes of legal educology – i.e. (1) being part of a general and (2) being special – and provide with some hints on the directions into which the teaching of lawyers could be developed or where problems could be raised. Five parts in this paper are separated by posing five relevant questions in a generative way.
