(p.335) 23 Setting an Agenda for the Global Clinical Movement
The Global Clinical Movement


Oxford University Press

This chapter addresses the need for the global clinical movement, which despite its widely shared mission and significant accomplishments still lacks a clear vision of how to influence the legal education around the world, to set an agenda for the future. It first articulates a unifying vision based on the three goals most widely shared by clinicians: increasing access to justice for previously unrepresented groups; reforming legal education so that it provides the knowledge, skills and values needed in our complex world; and creating a legal profession more diverse, skilled and committed to serving social needs. It then suggests strategies and models of how to reach that vision, including partnering with other entities providing legal aid; making clinical education mandatory and instituting student practice rules; improving teacher education in clinical pedagogy and communication using new technologies; ending corruption in the legal profession; and building the structure of the movement.
