Gwersi o Ogledd Iwerddon: Awdurdodaeth Gymreig a dyfodol addysg gyfreithiol yng Nghymru
(Lessons from Northern Ireland: A Welsh jurisdiction and the future of legal education in Wales)

Osian Rees & Huw Pritchard

Devolution has led to significant divergences between the law of Wales and the law of England. Furthermore, the question of whether a separate Welsh jurisdiction is needed is increasingly being given serious consideration. With this in mind, this article examines the issue of legal education in Wales, and considers what developments are needed in order to meet the challenges and opportunities resulting from devolution, as well as any additional developments that would be needed if a Welsh jurisdiction were to be established in the future. In so doing, the article sets out some key findings from an empirical research project carried out in Northern Ireland, which as a small jurisdiction with a devolved government within the United Kingdom, provides an instructive point of reference.
