FYE2 : recognising and acting on the synergies between the first and final year experiences in legal education
Wells, Ian B., Kift, Sally M., & Field, Rachael M. (2008) FYE2 : recognising and acting on the synergies between the first and final year experiences in legal education. In 11th Pacific Rim First Year in Higher Education Conference 2008, 30 June - 2 July 2008, Hobart.
This paper highlights the importance in Australia of providing an effective final year experience in higher education to bookend the progress that has been made to develop coherent first year experience programs. Though the observations made are of general application, the paper focuses on legal education and argues that the special circumstances of final year students create an imperative to ensure that we “close the loop” on their university studies. The paper considers the synergies in issues of curriculum renewal for first and final year students of tertiary education, and argues that the development of a coherent final year experience/capstone program in Australian universities, and particularly in legal education, is long overdue.
