Theory and Practice of Clinical Legal Education

The programme will appeal to those wanting to develop their knowledge, skills and values as law teachers and/or as legal practitioners. This programme focuses on the rationale for and the design and delivery of �hands-on� methods of studying law from both educational and professional practice perspectives; on completion, LLM students should be equipped to establish and run clinical courses; students address, in an applied way, the theories derived from educational �best practice� and relevant professional practice rules, and also put those principles into effect through their supervised casework and mentoring of others engaged in clinical classes.

Entry requirements

Applicants will normally be expected to have obtained an undergraduate Law degree with honours (2.1 or higher, or its equivalent).

Course modules

Module includes: The theory and practice of CLE; Setting up and running clinics - principles and best practice; In house Clinic practice. Plus attendance at live clinic sessions.
