Abstract

At Glasgow Graduate School of Law (GGSL), we deliver the one year long Diploma in Legal Practice. Its stated aim is to equip students with the basic skills and knowledge required for legal practice. As a result, in addition to core modules including Conveyancing, Private Client and Accountancy, we ask our students to work in a virtual environment on client projects in assigned teams. This study investigates the learning experience offered by this team working through analysis of our students’ self-reflective reports and the development of a learning/trust matrix. The results identify the characteristics of positive and negative learning experiences and provide important information about how to support students to maximise their learning and shift them from student to trainee practitioner.
