Abstract

This chapter, from the book "Australian Clinical Legal Education" compares efforts in Australia, the United Kingdom, and the United States to establish best practices or standards in clinical legal education and the resulting best practices that were developed. The material in this chapter may aid faculty teaching clinical courses in other countries as they consider whether to develop their own best practices in light of their cultures, legal institutions, and systems of legal education.

Keywords: legal education, clinical legal education, best practices, standards, designing clinical courses, operating clinical programs
