This accessible How To Guide provides practical guidance on how to successfully include employability into the law school. Innovative ideas are shared on how to establish effective independent employability initiatives and embed employability within the law curriculum itself.

Bringing together a team of highly experienced legal educators, this book focuses on providing hands-on tips and advice for both new and seasoned teachers. Contributors present a diverse range of case studies, from small employability initiatives within law modules to authentic methods of teaching and assessment that mimic the workplace. Looking beyond employability solely in the legal sector, they explore how to support the development of students’ transferable skills and attributes. The book also highlights important developments in legal education such as including employability considerations in academic tutoring and targeting support towards underrepresented groups of students.

How to Include Employability in the Law School will prove an invaluable guide for legal educators seeking to enhance their teaching. It will also be an important resource for educational developers, providing practical examples of successful employability initiatives tailored to their educational context.
