    Abstract

    Even when geographically isolated, the small populations—both general and legal—of micro-jurisdictions and small states typically require them to reach beyond, often far beyond, their shores. This doesn’t mean that they are isolated intellectually. Instead, their necessary engagement with outside traditions and influences makes them crossroads of interaction between peoples, jurisdictions, and powers. This is especially true of so-called mixed jurisdictions where the legal tradition is an explicit, obvious hybrid. With these encounters in mind, this chapter explores legal education and training and the legal profession in three mixed/micro-jurisdictions: Malta, Jersey, and Seychelles. The three provide a useful focus for comparative analysis. Each jurisdiction is an island or archipelago. Both Malta and Jersey are within Europe, while Seychelles is a considerable distance away geographically, and arguably culturally as well. Jersey and Seychelles are particularly small jurisdictions with populations of less than 105,000 each. By comparison, Malta is significantly larger, with more than four times that number of people, though it is still well within common definitions of micro-jurisdictions.
