Blogs as a teaching tool and method of Public Legal Education: a case study
AbstractSocial media, and blogs specifically, can potentially have a dual raison d'être: enriching a law student’s educational experience whilst simultaneously educating the general public. Through a case study analysis of a blog project employed in a clinical legal education module at Northumbria University, the opportunities, challenges and limitations of using blogs in this way will be explored from both a pedagogical and public legal education perspective.
