Globally, the methodologies of legal education have not changed in any fundamental way, some methods dating back hundreds of years. Law schools have relied, for too long, on passive learning methods such as lectures or cases. Clinical legal education provides an alternative that is more than just another pedagogical method. It provides a way for students to experience their emerging professional selves, while providing services or projects with poor and underrepresented clients.

This book documents both the historical origins of clinical experiments in the earliest days of U.S. university legal education, and the now-global reach of clinical pedagogy as a proven tool for effective training of legal professionals.
