"This book focuses on what and how to teach students about being a lawyer as they take responsibility for clients in a clinical course. The book identifies learning and lawyering theories as well as practical approaches to planning and teaching. It highlights how four clinical methodologies - seminar, rounds, supervision, and fieldwork - reinforce and complement each other. The book illustrates clinical education's transformative potential to create ethical, skilled, thoughtful practitioners imbued with professional values of service to clients and justice. With contributions by veteran and newer clinical educators, the book combines well-developed and innovative conceptual and practical approaches that will help all who teach in experiential lawyering course"--Unedited summary from book cover.
