"Curriculum Reform: Linking Theory and Practice"

Join us as we continue the cycle of best practices discussions that have occurred across the country in response to the recently published BEST PRACTICES FOR LEGAL EDUCATION and the Carnegie Foundation Report, EDUCATING LAWYERS. We will focus on efforts of curricular reform, highlighting innovative programs in legal education that were implemented in response to these publications or otherwise fulfill their spirit, and discuss the centrality of clinical legal education to curricular innovation and reform.
