American Association of Law Schools (AALS) 2012 Workshop for New Clinical Law School Teachers

Conference / Event Location

Washington, DC


The Workshop for New Clinical Law School Teachers is designed to offer new law faculty an introduction to clinical teaching, and to the challenges of balancing the various roles that clinical teachers are expected to perform. The Workshop will address the basic tasks of the clinical teacher-- setting goals for clinical courses, teaching professional skills and values, supervising students and producing scholarship—and will provide the perspective of clinicians who were recently new teachers themselves. Concurrent sessions will focus on clinical program design and navigating the academy. At lunch, the "Future Trends" session will present a role play on modeling an integration project.
