View HLS in the Community Details

What are the unique knowledge, skills, and habits of mind associated with lawyering for systemic justice in the U.S.? What are effective methods for teaching these competencies to law students? How can clinics, externships, and other offerings in the experiential curriculum move beyond zealous advocacy for individual clients to engage students meaningfully in another of their ethical obligations as lawyers – to be public citizens with a special responsibility for the administration of justice and the preservation of society? This workshop is designed for clinical law teachers and others teaching as part of the experiential curriculum. It will use recent efforts at HLS to experiment with answers to the above questions as the springboard for a robust discussion.
