Abstract

When legal clinics were first established in law schools in the United States, they looked very similar to “legal aid cells” in Indian law schools. Those clinics in the U.S. were often self-guided by students, who received no credit, and provided legal aid only to the local community. Although in India that model still prevails, starting in the 1960s, U.S. clinical programs transformed significantly. Law schools now offer a wide variety of clinics and they are embedded within the law school pedagogical structure.

Keywords: legal clinics, law school, Indian law schools, India, U.S. clinical programs, pedagogical structure
