The Impact of Public Interest Law on Legal Education

(p.196) 13 The Impact of Public Interest Law on Legal Education
The Global Clinical Movement


Oxford University Press

This chapter explores the impact of public interest law on legal education and, in particular, on clinical legal education. It analyzes two peculiarities of public interest law in relation to a more traditional perspective of the law—its special connection to reality and its connection to material justice—and argues that understanding those peculiarities can help address one of the main problems regarding modern legal education, its keenness to conformity. The chapter includes discussions of the issue of conformity and of public interest law's connection to reality and to material justice. It then analyzes their impact on legal education, drawing on two cases at two law school clinics in Brazil and Poland.

Keywords:   legal education, public interest law, reality, conformity, material justice, Brazil, Poland
