The Bologna Process and the Future of Clinical Education in Europe: A View from Spain

The Bologna Process and the Future of Clinical Education in Europe: A View from Spain

(p.121) 8 The Bologna Process and the Future of Clinical Education in Europe: A View from Spain
The Global Clinical Movement


Oxford University Press

This chapter addresses the role that the Bologna Process for the construction of a European Higher Education Area has played in promoting changes in Spanish legal education, and the role that clinical legal education can play in the transition from a classical model of legal education to the model, methodology, and aims of the Bologna Process. It presents a brief overview of the origins and state of legal education in Spain, an explanation of how the Bologna Process can influence Spanish legal education, and a discussion of existing clinical programs in Spain. The chapter demonstrates that clinical education has had an impact at some of the leading law schools in Spain since the beginning of the implementation of the Bologna Process, and argues that it can be one of the most useful tools to achieve the aims of legal education reform in continental Europe: updating, modernizing, internationalizing, and promoting social awareness.
