CLINICAL LAW TEACHING & PRACTICE eJOURNAL
View Papers: http://ssrn.com/link/Clinical-Law-Teaching-Practice.html
Sponsor: New York Law School has a longstanding commitment to preparing its graduates for the world of practice, and to scholarly examination of lawyering skills and lawyering pedagogy. The school’s skills education program begins with an 8-credit, full-year Legal Practice course in the first year, in which students study legal writing, oral advocacy, interviewing, counseling and negotiation. In upper years students can build on this foundation with a wide range of externships, simulation courses, moot competition teams, upper-year legal writing classes, project-based learning classes, and 26 different clinical offerings. NYLS has also been the home of the Clinical Theory Workshops for over 20 years.
Description: This eJournal distributes working and accepted paper abstracts with a focus on postings of works of clinical scholarship. We define “clinical scholarship” broadly, to embrace any examination of law teaching or law practice that reflects or grows out of a focus on educating law students by giving them experience in the practice of law. Such scholarship includes articles addressing clinical pedagogy, developing clinical models for the practice of law, or offering clinically-based appraisals of lawyers’ work or of legal institutions and rules. We are especially interested in posting works-in-progress, so that authors can receive feedback on their ideas while they are still developing them, and we encourage clinicians (and others) in the US and elsewhere to submit their manuscripts for posting.

Associate Dean for Academic Affairs, Professor of Law, New York Law School
