Legal education is becoming more experiential, and this is a good thing. This essay examines both claims, and provides an account both of the origins of the experiential turn in legal education, and its implications. This account is written from a Canadian perspective, and more parochially, from an Osgoode Hall Law School perspective. That said, I believe this analysis is relevant to legal education more broadly, and contributes to the ongoing and vital debate over the future of Law School.

Keywords: experience, legal, education, future, law, school
