The first part of this chapter will discuss the question of what it actually means to 'teach legal ethics'. This seems to be an essential starting point for all teachers in the area, even if the answers that they provide reflect some differences in assumptions and beliefs about what it actually means to be an ethical lawyer. The followng section looks at why and how student learning in legal ethics and professional responsibility should and can be embedded in multiple subjects throughout the degree. The final section discusses the idea of an 'ethics learning activity' and considers aspects of assessment in this area. The chapter concludes with some samples of assessment tasks that are likely to engage students quite serously with the meaning of personal ethical practice.
