This new Second Edition of Clinical Anthology: Readings for Live Client Clinics has the same goal as the first edition published in 1997: to make available to law students in live-client clinical courses materials which introduce the goals and methods of clinical education and identify and address the issues and dilemmas consistently arising in the practice of law.
The Second Edition of Clinical Anthology: Readings for Live Client Clinics is also updated to reflect the growth of clinical scholarship that has had a significant influence on curriculum and methodology in law schools throughout the United States since 1997. And, it differs from the first edition in the following ways:
• It is organized into five parts, each with two or three chapters;
• It includes excerpts in Chapter 1 of portions of the Clinical Legal Education Association-sponsored Best Practices Project and the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching study of legal education, which emphasize the critical role of clinical experience in preparing students for the legal profession;
• It moves the materials from Chapters 2 and 6 of the first edition to Part II titled "Professionalism: Ethics, Values and Access to Justice" in order to emphasize that a lawyer's duty to clients, to the justice system, and to the public are inseparable components of professionalism; and
• It adds a new chapter: "Re-thinking Advocacy: Community Lawyering and Transactional Clinics" in the new Part III to respond to the increased diversity of types of clinics and their approaches.
Professors and adjunct professors may request complimentary examination copies of LexisNexis law school publications to consider for class adoption or recommendation. Please identify the book(s) you wish to receive, provide your institutional contact information, and submit your request here.
