Educating the Next Generation of Lawyers by Transforming the Traditional Law LectureBill Flanagan, Dean, Faculty of Law, Queen's University

As law firms place greater emphasis on adaptability, client skills, and the ability to innovate, law schools are challenged to incorporate evolving technology into their curriculum in addition to introducing more soft skills like group collaboration and social learning. In this session, Dean Flanagan will share his views on how the traditional law lecture needs to change to better serve the next generation of lawyers and will discuss his experience using Echo360 technology to engage students in a large Corporate Law class.

Bill Flanagan has served as Dean for the past 13 years. He has led the school through unprecedented growth, including the establishment of the Faculty’s PhD program, the creation of the Centre for Law in the Contemporary Workplace, the expansion of the Queen’s Law Clinics and the integration of blended and digital learning into the Faculty.
