Abstract

This paper considers pedagogical questions surrounding the teaching of law to non-lawyers. It draws on research into the teaching, learning and assessment of law in social work education. The research comprised a systematic review of international literature, a practice survey, focus groups with students and practice teachers, and two stakeholder conferences. The evidence suggests that law teaching in social work education is of particular interest in highlighting key dimensions of education practice that affect students learning. The paper provides some signposts towards research-informed organisation of teaching, learning and assessment, and highlights important areas for further study.
