St. John’s U Law School Professor Gina Calabrese posted this query to the clinic listserv:
“I’d like to hear from other clinicians whose schools are taking
steps to study and implement the Best Practices report. What
is being done, what issues are being raised?”
I think this would make a good public discussion. We know that U of Dayton has created the “Lawyer as Problem Solver” Program (http://law.udayton.edu/prospectivestudents). And,everyone has heard about Washington & Lee’s 3rd year reform. (http://law.wlu.edu/thirdyear).
However, these schools are not the only ones engaged in change. Much energy and work and thinking and reform is occurring without fanfare or media attention – so here is your chance to share news about your school!
Let’s see if we can get at least 50 schools to report! I’ll start with ALBANY LAW:
ALBANY – the Dean has established a Center for Excellence in Law Teaching to document ongoing reform and to support teaching and curriculum enhancement. ( see www.teachinglawstudents.com and click on Albany Law Initiatives or go straight to http://www.albanylaw.edu/sub.php?navigation_id=1717 ).
