This grant was used to develop Jeff Giddings’ book, which considers how clinical legal education can contribute to student learning, social justice, community engagement and research.
Clinical legal education is of increasing significance to law schools in Australia and across the globe. The potential to combine community service with student learning distinguishes clinical teaching from other forms of legal education.
The book provides a framework for understanding the establishment and sustainability of clinical programs. Giddings uses in-depth historical case studies of major Australian clinical programs to identify how various groups can harness the great potential of clinical legal education.
