Protégé: Putting emotion back into legal teaching

Most people study and practise law for emotional reasons, but as lawyers, we are trained to sideline those emotions and consider legal issues objectively and dispassionately. What kind of impact does this have, particularly with regard to LGBTI rights?

On this episode of The Protégé Podcast, host Jerome Doraisamy speaks with Manchester Law School reader in human rights law Dr Senthorun Raj about a recent research paper he published on the mapping of emotional grammar as it pertains to LGBTI rights in law schools, why this is such an important topic, whether emotion is incompatible with blackletter law, and the extent to which law can or should be divorced from passion.

Dr Raj also discusses whether emotional grammar, particularly as it pertains to LGBTI rights, is even more critical in the post-pandemic new normal, the need to get the next generation of lawyers into good habits from day one, how best to incorporate emotional literacy into legal education (both for students and practitioners), and how best individuals can ensure they can upskill on such matters.
