This article, in assuming that learning in legal ethics is a necessary part of law school education, relies largely on aspects of the work of John Biggs to show how educational theory can assist in highlighting and clarifying potential difficulties in the design and implementation of ethics learning systems in the legal curriculum. More specifically, Biggs's approach illustrates the importance of formulating ethics learning objectives with particular care and of ensuring that learning activities, including assessment tasks, are aligned with the chosen learning objectives.
