Teaching Legal Ethics UK: Workshop on Understanding and Learning Moral Courage



This is the fourth in a series of workshops designed to consider all aspects of the teaching and learning of legal ethics in undergraduate, postgraduate, professional and continuing legal education.

Previous workshops have included role-play, demonstrations of learning resources, discussion of using simulations and other active learning methods, as well as considerations of underlying issues such as why we consider teaching legal ethics important, who we seek to benefit and what we understand by doing so. 

Workshops on the day include:

  • Lessons from Gandhi: Transforming legal education.
    Clark Cunningham, Georgia State University
  • What makes a person morally courageous?
    Graham Ferris and Jane Jarman, Nottingham Law School
  • Reflections on moral courage and the necessity of practical wisdom.
    Phil Drake and Stuart Toddington, University of Huddersfield
  • Learning to take a stand through storytelling.
    Dawn Watkins and Alison Davies, University of Leicester
  • A virtue approach to understanding courage in legal practice.
    Hywel Thomas, Luca Badini Confalonieri and Ben Kotzee, University of Birmingham

Read the Workshop Programme.

The Workshop will be followed by the Launch of City Law School's new Centre for the Study of Legal Professional Practice, with a keynote address by Baroness Hale. All participants will be welcome to join us in celebrating this new Centre.

This workshop is limited to 30 places.
