Are you trying to:
- Develop a meaningful law school mission statement?
- Understand new accreditation requirements, learning goals, and outcomes assessment?
- Expand your experiential offerings? Decide whether to use modules or courses? An on-site clinic, an externship, or community partnership?
- Teach ALL of your students in the most effective ways, using a full range of teaching methods?
- Add to your curriculum more of the professional identity, leadership, intercultural, inter-professional and other knowledge, skills, and values sought by 21st century legal employers?
- Lead thoughtfully in the face of the challenges facing legal education today?
These and other topics are addressed in Building on Best Practices: Transforming Legal Education in a Changing World, now available in ebook format from LexisNexis at no charge.
The print version is not yet out. LEXIS-NEXIS is taking advance orders for $50, plus shipping. BUT we understand that they will make one copy available to every US legal educator for free upon on request. Details on this and international availability still to come.
Thanks, and congratulations, to book project sponsor Clinical Legal Education Association (CLEA), the more than fifty legal educators who participated as authors, and the countless others who assisted as readers and in numerous other ways.
And, a huge shout-out to my wonderful and talented co-editors, Lisa Radke Bliss, Carrie Wilkes Kaas, and Antoinette Sedillo Lopez.
