Conversations on \u22Community Lawyering:\u22 The Newest (Oldest) Wave in Clinical Legal Education

By Karen Tokarz, Nancy L. Cook, Susan Brooks and Brenda Bratton Blom


This Article explores the pedagogical and professional challenges and rewards of community lawyering and clinical legal education. The authors are clinical law faculty who self-identify as community lawyers and teachers of community lawyering clinics. They have gathered in recent years with a larger group of similarly engaged colleagues to discuss what is meant by community lawyering, how it is taught, and how it is practiced. This Article seeks to capture some of those conversations, crystallize some of the ideas that have arisen out of the discussions, and examine the implications of these ruminations for future directions in clinical legal education
