This biographical study of the lived experiences of six law teachers offers a new dimension to understanding the dynamics of law teaching. The overall purpose of the study is to reveal how these law teachers make sense of the world of legal education in terms of their identity, educative values and also whether they necessarily regard themselves as academics. The significance of this study is the contribution it seeks to make in further understanding individual law teachers and how they experience the dynamics of a rapidly changing teaching environment. The study reveals how different experiences emerge through a complex interplay of spheres of influence and theoretical frames of reference. A model is developed to show the ways in which competing spheres of influence surround the academic. The model identifies key agencies which inform the context of legal education. A theoretical perspective considers possible explanations for apparent epistemological shifts in the academy. The lived experiences of law teachers are set against this background which provides tools of analysis for understanding the dynamics of law teaching.
