Academic Integrity in the Law School: Past Experiences, Current Challenges, and Future Perspectives

This hybrid International Conference will focus on the topic of Academic Integrity in the Law School from an international perspective.

Despite the growing importance of Academic Integrity for the work of HE institutions and the learning experience of students, the research done on the topic has been geographically limited and based on non-legal subjects (especially science-related). In this context, an important aspect of legal education that has been analysed by the scholarship and academic institutions only marginally is the implementation of Academic Integrity in the School of Law.

This hybrid International Conference, funded by the Society of Legal Scholars and the Centre for Innovation and Research in Legal Education of the University of Leeds, will focus on the topic of Academic Integrity in the Law School from an international perspective. Particularly, the Conference aims at starting a trans-jurisdictional dialogue around the processes of education and implementation of Academic Integrity policies in different law schools across a range of diverse countries. It will also explore how Academic Integrity is perceived by the stakeholders involved in legal education (namely, educators, academic support staff, and students).
