Conversations with the President: Ready, set... practice!

Conversations With The President: The state of the profession, Ep 4:

Less than 70 years ago, people wanting to enter the common law legal profession in Canada took some courses, but mostly they learned to do by doing, through years of apprenticeship to senior lawyers. Today we’ll talk to two law school deans, Ian Holloway and Camille Cameron about who should be providing on-the-job training.

Ian Holloway has been dean at UCalgary Law for more than a decade. He’s also a former member of the CBA Legal Futures Initiative Task Force, where he acted as legal education and training team leader. 

Camille Cameron started her legal career in Halifax but since then has worked as a legal consultant and advisor in a number of countries including Cambodia and China. Before coming to the Schulich School of Law she was law dean at the University of Windsor. 

Dean Cameron says legal educators have to prepare students for the future, and that’s what we’re going to talk about today.
