Presentation at APLEC 2013. Kristoffer Greaves is researching how lawyers who teach lawyers’ skills in PLT engage in scholarly activities regarding their teaching work. This qualitative research involves cross-disciplinary exchanges between law, legal education, education theory and practice, sociology of law, and cultural theory. Data collected for the research includes 30+ hours semi-structured interviews with 35 PLT practitioners working with different PLT providers around Australia. One question asked during the interviews - Is thinking like a lawyer different to thinking like a teacher? - elicited reflective and diverse responses and insights about how PLT practitioners reconcile ‘thinking like a lawyer’ with their teaching and mentoring work. This presentation discusses the relevance and significance of these insights in the context of scholarship of teaching in PLT, and practical legal training’s ‘big picture’ purpose to improve protection of clients, protection of the administration of justice, and the assurance of the quality of legal services.
