The project was prompted by survey data which indicates that there are widespread difficulties in attracting lawyers to rural and regional areas. Further literature research and assessment of current practice revealed that employment as a lawyer in a rural or regional context is characterised by distinct challenges and opportunities; however, the tertiary curriculum does little to prepare students for practice in these areas, despite being well positioned to do so. This led to the creation of a publicly accessible and fully customisable curriculum package, which seeks to sensitise students to the realities of rural and regional legal practice, and prepare them for such career pathways.||Publication Type:||Conference Publication||Conference Name:||WCLTA 2012: 3rd World Conference on Learning, Teaching and Educational Leadership, Brussels, Belgium, 25th - 28th October, 2012||Conference Details:||WCLTA 2012: 3rd World Conference on Learning, Teaching and Educational Leadership, Brussels, Belgium, 25th - 28th October, 2012||Source of Publication:||Procedia - Social and Behavioral Sciences, v.93, p. 317-321||Publisher:||Elsevier BV||Place of Publication:||The Netherlands||ISSN:||1877-0428||Field of Research (FOR):||180121 Legal Practice, Lawyering and the Legal Profession||Socio-Economic Outcome Codes:||949999 Law, Politics and Community Services not elsewhere classified
