Abstract This paper explores the potential pegagigical benefits for law students associated with students' design of, and participation in, role-play as a means of developing empathy in students studying legal negotiation. Based on reflections from two teachers regarding the experience of students designing role-plays that were 'acted out' by peer groups of students, the authors speculate upon the potential of this learning and teaching strategy to build empathy in law students.
