Leadership in Tumultuous Times

As law schools face increasing pressures to prepare students for post-graduate careers, law clinic directors, externship directors, and deans who oversee experiential education are challenged to enhance their programming to include more practice areas and skills, often while assisting in the expansion of clinics, externships, and other experiential learning programs throughout their curricula. The Clinical and Experiential Law Program Directors Workshop will provide a supportive environment for clinic directors and experiential deans, whose roles include supervising other clinicians and managing entire clinical law, externship, or experiential law programs, to engage in dialogue on challenges, plans, developments, and successes. Directors and other lead administrators will share how they are addressing the pressures of new regulations, decreasing resources, and the many other complexities of these tumultuous times for legal educators and the communities served by clinics and other parts of the experiential law school curriculum.
