Abstract

This chapter develops a taxonomy of scholarship in legal education through examination of research papers published in a sample of Australian journals between 2006–2017. The taxonomy is designed to make explicit the methods, approaches, and purposes of legal education scholarship as a reflection of the intersection of scholars’ discipline practices in both law and education, as both teachers and as researchers, as both lawyers and teachers. Through description and theorization of legal education research, it substantiates the contribution of SoLE to the legal academy, and to law and legal practice, within an explicit research framework.

Keywords: Legal Education, Taxonomy, Research, Legal Research, Education Research
