Addressing Lawyer Competence, Ethics, and Professionalism

Addressing Lawyer Competence, Ethics, and Professionalism

(p.183) 12 Addressing Lawyer Competence, Ethics, and Professionalism
The Global Clinical Movement



Oxford University Press

This chapter explains the limited ways in which legal ethics and professionalism are addressed in most traditional law programs and proposes more challenging goals for legal education, recognizing the importance of introducing students to the values underpinning the professional codes. It presents the diversity of approaches to addressing lawyer competence, ethics, and professionalism in different jurisdictions, and identifies the different ways in which clinical legal education and clinical methods may be used to address these issues. The chapter considers the advantages and disadvantages of each, and gives concrete examples of effective methods. It underpins this with the theoretical basis for such experiential learning approaches and explains how active learning can provide effective ways of encouraging moral development. It also considers the particular contribution played by the global clinical movement to developing legal ethics education.

Keywords:   global, clinical methods, professionalism, legal ethics, professional values, experiential learning, active learning, moral development
