Workshop E

Integrating Clinical Client Issues into First Year Legal Writing and Doctrinal Classes

Many students come to law school with a sense of purpose and desire to advance social justice. The rigors of first year classes, however, often place these ideals on pause or otherwise cause students to question whether their natural inclination for social justice can be fulfilled as lawyers.

Building on the joint legal writing and clinical education session presented at the recent AALS conference, clinical and legal writing professors will discuss and explore ways to introduce real and real time client issues into first year classes.
