What the next generation of lawyers is currently learning won’t necessarily be what they need to thrive in years to come. As such, new approaches are needed, says an award-winning law student.

In this episode of The Protégé Podcast, host Jerome Doraisamy speaks with a fifth-year law student at the University of Technology, Sydney, Kurt Cheng, about the evolution of legal education and why rethinking academic models for the emerging cohort of legal professionals is so critical in the current climate.

Mr Cheng discusses the work he is doing with his university council to revamp educational approaches, the perspective he’s gleaned about needed changes, updated learning models, the importance of social impact, the place for artificial intelligence in evolving education standards, striking the right balance in producing law graduates, what career fulfilment looks like to him, and how students can seek opportunities and remain inspired.
