IP education traditionally took place in a Law School. Yet, IP Education may now be received in any university faculty. At the same time, today’s typical law classroom has very little in common with a law classroom of 20 or even 10 years ago. Whilst the world changes, a certain reticence for change can be felt in law schools throughout the world. If decades ago, university law classes were filled with the traditional 18-year old heading off to live in a dorm, today, a legal educator can expect the student cohort to be much more diverse. With a student population from varied backgrounds and contexts comes different needs and expectations. And this can present a real challenge for faculty members trying to support students on their learning journey. This chapter investigates how IP educators can best meet today's IP students needs and expectations.
