This handbook provides clinical requirements and other information to help guide the year long program. Sections include: (1) "Introduction: A Word of Welcome"; (2) "Goals of the Street Law-High Schools Clinic for Law Students"; (3) "Course Requirements"; (4) "Field Supervision"; (5) "Administrative Responsibilities"; and (6) "Evaluation and Grading."
