Abstract and Keywords

It is important to distinguish education from training. Training is concerned with providing a person with the knowledge and skills required to undertake a specific and immediate task. It is focused and utilitarian. Education is concerned with enabling an individual to understand and reflect upon knowledge and processes and to be able to act in a critical and responsible manner. It is concerned with critical self-awareness. The two are, in reality, on a spectrum between doing and being. They are also located in the spectrum between short-term and long-term development. This article deals with legal education, specifically the purposes of legal education and the methods of supporting student learning.

Keywords: legal education, student learning, training, education
