     CANADIAN BAR REVIEW EDITION ON LEGAL
                         EDUCATION:
  INTRODUCTION FROM THE CBA LEGAL FUTURES
       INITIATIVE AND THE CBA EQUAL JUSTICE
                          INITIATIVE


This special edition of the Canadian Bar Review stems from the event,
Transforming Legal Education in Canada: A Workshop to Inspire Change,
hosted jointly by the Canadian Bar Review and the Legal Futures Initiative
in Toronto in March 2016. The workshop  brought together academics,
lawyers and law students for a day of creative thinking. Participants worked
together in small groups to critically analyze and test emerging ideas on
how  to select, educate, license, train, and assess the lawyers of the future.
In addition, thirteen scholars, practitioners, and professional educators
presented papers, introducing new ideas and sparking the day's discussion.
Readers of the Canadian Bar Review  can now  also engage with those
thought-provoking ideas through this special edition.

    The workshop arose from our growing understanding of the changing
needs of the profession. Learning is now a life-long commitment for lawyers.
Our  clients come to us more empowered, with increasing access to legal
information online and to assistance from other professionals. To meet the
challenges from these and other new competitors, lawyers need a wider set
of skills, particularly from other disciplines, and they also need to keep their
skills current through effective training methods. On a deeper level, change
is necessary to ensure that the profession can reach and serve everyone's
legal needs. To achieve this goal, the profession should reflect the diversity
of the population it serves. As the gatekeeper to the profession, education
plays a key role in shaping the next generation of lawyers, and therefore the
ability to thrive in this environment of change.
