Legal Education and Lawyer Competency. Curricula for Change.
Dutile, Fernand N., Ed.
Resulting from a conference co-sponsored by the Notre Dame Law School and the American Bar Association (ABA), this book explores recent innovations in legal education, specifically those "apprenticeship" programs in clinical and client counseling. Papers include: "The Problem of Teaching Lawyer Competency" (Fernand N. Dutile); "Opening Remarks" (S. Shepherd Tate); "The Need for Greater Emphasis on Skills Development" (Roger C. Cramton, Alvin B. Rubin, Richard Nahstoll, and John Cribbet); "Teaching and Testing Clinical Skills" (David Barnhizer, James Brill, Ronald Staudt, and Dean Rivkin); "Effective Teaching of Litigative Skills" (Kenneth Brown, Fred H. Bartlit, John Powers Crowley, Robert Hanley, James Seckinger, and Robert Keeton); "Effective Teaching of Lawyer's Function, Role, and Responsibility (Professional Responsibility, Legal Profession, and Management of Legal Work)" (Samuel Smith, Roberta Ramo, Norman Redlich, and Francis H. Musselman); "The Non-Conventional Third Year--including Counseling and Interviewing" (Willard Pedrick, Thomas Shaffer, Sam F. Fowler, Jr., Gary Munneke, and Donald Berman); "Negotiation and Arbitration" (James White and Bernard Dobranski); "Getting There from Here: Priorities, Remedies, and Resources" (Lewis Collens, Orrin Helstad, and Kenneth Penegar); and "Computer-Assisted Teaching" (Roger Park, Russell Burris, Richard McGonigal, and Spencer Neth). It is suggested that clinical education will expand the strength of law school education by giving students real experience in professional responsibility, and by enhancing their theoretical ability.
