  • Abstract:

    English: Surveys conducted in a selection of jurisdictions are discussed to determine whether clinical legal education should be a core and mandatory course in the LLB curriculum. The focus of a university law clinic and the role of the clinician are examined. The pedagogy that must be used in clinical legal education is explored. The discussions specifically consider skills, values and expected outcomes for the course, as well as effective assessment programmes and common requirements for the design of a curriculum.
