Reflections on Working in Teams in Law School.

How can a law school teach students to work in teams?  To work collaboratively?  To nurture their creativity and give them a chance to work on a cause larger than themselves?  In a recent  forthcoming article in the New York Law School Law Review, I recount my experience as a student in a law school clinic in the early 1990s where my classmates and I, together with our faculty supervisors and community partners, worked on litigation to close the refugee camp for HIV+ Haitians maintained on the U.S. naval base on Guantánamo Bay, Cuba.   In the piece, I explore these questions and more.

  1. Ray,
    This is a beautifully written and compelling story, accessible to both lawyers and the general public. It contains important insights about teamwork, social justice, and capturing the enthusiasm of young people who want to make their mark on the world and “do good”. Once I began reading, I couldn’t put it down. Thanks for writing this and sharing it with the list.
