Law, by its very nature, tends to think locally, not globally. This book has a broader scope in terms of the range of nations and offers a succinct journey through law schools on different continents and subject matters. It covers education, research, impact and societal outreach, and governance. It illustrates that law schools throughout the world have much in common in terms of values, duties, challenges, ambitions and hopes. It provides insights into these aspirations, whilst presenting a thought-provoking discussion for a more global agenda on the future of law schools. Written from the perspective of a former dean, the book offers a unique understanding of the challenges facing legal education and research.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'Stolker does much to explain some of the particularities (or should I say peculiarities) of law schools, and poses many questions we all need to ask about the ways such institutions currently work ... Rethinking the Law School, as its title promises, does much to get the reader thinking about law schools' purpose and mission.' Caroline Hunter, Times Higher Education
'This book, written by a former law school dean ... ought to be obligatory reading for every new law school manager around the globe because it deals with all the major challenges facing law schools today.' Rob van Gestel, The Modern Law Review
'If you are looking to examine global trends in legal education, this book is a great asset, whether you seek to read it all or to focus on a specific chapter. ... While none of the topics addressed are particularly new ... seeing these familiar topics discussed on a global scale, noting both our similarities and our differences, provides a unique and fascinating perspective. By comparing and contrasting legal education in nations around the world, and by understanding the values placed on legal education in legal systems other than our own, we may find ourselves better able to appreciate, embrace, and pass on the values of our own institutions to the students who will take these ideals into the world.' Ashley Ahlbrand, Law Library Journal
