The Global Clinical Movement



Oxford University Press

This chapter looks at the development of clinical scholarship. It notes in particular the early writing on clinical legal education of Rowe and Frank, and then surveys the different forms that clinical research may currently take. It delineates some of the different motivations for clinical writing, and in particular asks whether the pressure to publish in order to meet the expectations of the Academy may lead to a form of clinical scholarship that does little to capture the different nature and outcomes of clinical learning and teaching. The chapter closes by examining the potentially parochial nature of clinical writing, which is currently dominated by the expectations about legal education that arise from the dominant jurisdictions. It argues that the habits of reflection that are the heart of clinical teaching should drive a more global approach in clinical writing.
