Abstract: The role of a lawyer in the Commonwealth isof particular importance for several reasons. Firstly, member countries of this body command a significant proportion of the world’s population, territory and resources. Consequently, law schools in the commonwealth bear a special onus to contribute to the production oflawyers in the new millennium. Secondly, a majority of Commonwealth nations are third-world nations struggling in that “search for development,” while exhibiting adversarial legal systems and the features of modern welfare states. Since many Commonwealth nations display these features, the education of a lawyer who is to operate under such a systemcarries with it special functions. This paper seeks to identify the challenges of the second millennium, their effect on future lawyers in the Commonwealth and how law schools may confront these challenges through structural improvements, curriculum reforms and inculcation of professional ethics.
