Discourse of competencies acquired in legal education

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

In a democratic constitutional state the profession of a jurist requires diverse knowledge and skills. For that reason enhancing competencies acquired in legal studies is one of the essential elements which ensure appropriate education of a future jurist. Modern legal education system is not precisely defined: there are different legal education models which have various programs of diverse length. However, diversification of legal education that has emerged recently should be focused on the standards of the jurist’s profession, irrespective of the new legal education models. Discourse on competences acquired in the process of legal education is a topic which has not been deeply analyzed, thus it deserves a thorough research. Therefore, the author seeks to examine different legal education systems and to ascertain whether existing legal education models are efficient, if they provide the opportunity to acquire the necessary common and specific competencies, ensure appropriate quality standards of the higher legal education. The present article analyzes diverse legal education models, discloses Lithuanian and foreign researchers’ attitude towards enhancing acquired competencies through the optimization of legal education programs, the change of subjects and the use of appropriate methodology.
