Excerpt

I am delighted to see this latest volume in the Effective Learning and Teaching series in print. the editors are to be congratulated on the immense amount of hard work they have invested in putting together this important contribution to the literature on learning and teaching in law. Teaching law is a complex task and I am sure that readers will find much useful information and advice in this book, as well as useful contact information and references to further reading. I am particularly happy to see a high level of involvement of the ltsn subject centre for law in shaping this volume, since it is imperative that the ilt and subject centres collaborate and provide a 'joined up' approach to supporting staff working in teaching and the support of learning.

The ilt is now at an important stage in its development, with more than 10,000 members as we go to press, 112 programmes in higher education teaching and learning accredited by the ilt and a full programme of publications, activities and events on offer. Now with members in the majority on our governing Council, active on all our committees and working parties and getting involved in running our members' forums and other events, members are increasingly taking charge of shaping and directing the policy and direction of the organisation.

This book has a part to play in the ILT's mission to enhance the status of teaching, improve the experience of learning and support innovation in higher education. I commend it to you, whether you are an ilt member or not and welcome the contribution it makes to the higher education context.
