Teaching in Both a Clinical and Classroom Setting Workshop

Location: Lake Nona
Date: Fri, May 1
Time: 2:15 PM - 5:15 PM

In this session, participants will learn from experienced instructors/lawyers from the California Innocence Project about how to teach “innocence law” in a both a classroom and clinical setting. The California Innocence Project has functioned as a law school clinic at California Western School of Law since 1999.  12 clinical students work for a full year in the project as part of their legal education.  They also take a course in wrongful convictions from the Clinic Director Justin Brooks.  In the session, Brooks and his staff attorney instructors will model teaching techniques that are used in both the clinic and the wrongful convictions course.  Participants should leave the session with new ideas, interest, and excitement for teaching.  Participants should be confident they can teach this material at both an undergraduate and graduate level.
