This Article describes the experience of two law professors and clinicians supervising several students on Election Day 2008 as they represented prospective voters who had been turned away at the polls. The Article analyzes the students' rapid progress through the lens of recent cognitive science research, and concludes by suggesting ways that the educational experiences of that day might be incorporated into other clinical settings.
