Abstract

Introducing action reflection learning into a law course to instil life-long learner skills and enable students to adapt to a new style of lawyering is essential if 21st Century lawyer needs are to be met. The paper describes the assessment, and the use of active reflective learning in a mediation course taught in an Australian law school. The benefits of such learning are described with specific attention to law teaching. Student reflections indicate the notable difference this teaching method had for their learning and development of a conflict resolution advocacy style.
