ALT Ethics Statement

The ALT has developed significantly over the last 50 years and has taken an increased interest in legal education research, including empirical research. As one of the major learned associations, we recognise that you, our members, may be looking for guidance on the ethical conduct of legal education research. We therefore hope that this statement can act as a guide for those wishing to embark on research of all types and into all aspects of legal education.

We think there are a number of key principles which should underpin all research. This statement therefore has the integrity and competence of the researcher, the quality of the research, collegiality and respect for research participants at its core.

We welcome your feedback on the statement and will keep it under review.
