Abstract

Concerned that externship and other clinical students were not always aware of their supervising attorneys' views of the students' progress, the authors examined the process of evaluation in the process of mentoring student professional development, attempting, as well, to define the qualities being evaluated, and to include the views of the supervising attorneys and judges. They critique the process of professional development mentoring of students in clinical experiences and recommend ways to improve communication in that process.

Keywords: mentoring, clinical education, externship, supervision, evaluation
