Session I: The Backgrounds and Reasons of Reforms in Different Countries and the Respective Goals to be Achieved 
When people discussed the reform of legal education, there must be some causes contributing to the reform and respective goals to be achieved when initiating the reform. It is expected that participants will discuss the motivations and factors driving or giving rise to the reform in their respective jurisdictions. Also participants might want to share with others the goals they contemplated to be achieved when they started the reform and the extents of the achievement of these goals.

Session II: Structural and Institutional Arrangements of Legal Education
Discussions will include the advantages and disadvantages of putting legal education at professional school level or at undergraduate level, the ways of recruiting students, and the consequences or unintended consequences, etc. Note that the focus of the conference will only be on the university legal education and will not be covering continuing legal education. Thus the training institutes for judges and prosecutors in some jurisdictions will not be covered so as not to dilute the focus of discussions.

Session IV: Bar Examinations and Prep. Schools
The examination system has a very in-depth influence on the legal education itself. In some jurisdictions bar preparation schools or so-called cram-schools also play important role in the examination system. It is expected that participants from those jurisdictions where prep. schools have important influences will contribute more on this topic.
