The contemporary law school sits at the intersection of global legal practice and global higher education. What was once a jurisdiction-specific endeavour is now ostensibly outward looking, driven by a call for international students, standards requiring equivalence of qualification, global rankings and the apparently borderless marketplace for graduates. At the same time though, there are calls for 'distinctive' graduates. While in one sense this relates to managerialist marketing of higher education, it is also relevant to grassroots community service and how a law school meets local community needs. This chapter frames a discussion of the direction of legal education around the dialectic of globalization and place, imputing not just geography and jurisdiction, but culture and community.
