Abstract

This Article discusses the business clinic movement and how legal educators view them as being an excellent vehicle for inculcating the values and practices that business lawyers hold dear. Business clinics may help students better appreciate the challenges of business lawyering, which they sometimes misunderstand as merely a forms practice. The Author believes that by putting students in the middle of real transactions, they gain a deeper understanding of the subtleties of making a transaction come together.

Keywords: business, law school clinics, business lawyers, corporation and enterprise law, legal education
