This textbook was created to provide a new tool for clinical teachers. It links together the central lawyering skills and values that are part of any clinical experience. Clinical Legal Education was written with a concentration on the Theory of the Client - a broadening of "case theory" to encompass all of the legal and non-legal approaches that can be used to advance one or more of a client's goals. Rather than defining prescriptive approaches to lawyering tasks, each chapter explores a number of "choice moments," those points at which a lawyer's choices will affect the scope and nature of the representation. Clinical Legal Education will help students learn to identify those moments and to effectively reach and implement decisions with their clients.
The book intends to provide a balanced approach to clinical psychology in a professional yet accessible style and includes up-to-date information on all topics.
