AALS 39TH ANNUAL CONFERENCE ON CLINICAL LEGAL EDUCATION
Clinics and Communities: Exploring Community Engagement Through Clinical Education
Saturday, April 30, 2016, 2 pm – 4 pm
Plenary Session: Rebellious Lawyering and Clinical Legal Education
Immediately following Gerald Lopez’s keynote address, the purpose of this plenary presentation is to surface and apply the tools and concepts of “Rebellious Lawyering” to a concrete clinic scenario, such as a request for services by a community group; or a development of strategy for client representation. The plenary addresses whether and how the ideas that animate Rebellious Lawyering might also operate through lawyering by clinical programs, and whether identifying these connections adds value.
