Abstract

Traditional approaches to teaching legal ethics which focus primarily on the content of the professional rules lack the essential problem solving aspect essential to a proper appreciation of professional responsibility in practice. They are also non responsive to the needs and expectations of modern students. This presentation showcases the Entry into Valhalla multimedia program, which utilises cost effective technology, including Second Life machinima, to transform traditional legal ethics curricula. It contextualises otherwise abstract principles and facilitates a problem solving approach based on real world-type contexts that closely resemble the kinds of dilemmas that students may encounter when they enter legal practice.
