 Past Conferences

The Sixth International Clinical Conference, entitled "Enriching Clinical Education" was held in October 2005. We are particularly happy to report that this was a truly international conference, as we hosted clinical scholars from Australia, China, the Czech Republic, England, India, Israel, Japan, Kyrgyzstan, Russia and Scotland.

The conference centered on four broad themes: Skills Training Revisited, Structuring the Clinical Experience, Learning from Other Perspectives and the Globalization of Clinical Legal Education.  Under these broad rubrics, the schedule offered a series of panels that described and evaluated ways in which clinical pedagogy is responding to the challenge of preparing our students to work in an increasingly complex, multi-party, technologically sophisticated, interdisciplinary, global legal world.
