The Sixth International Clinical Conference Will be Held Oct. 27-30 in Arrowhead, California
The UCLA School of Law and the University of London Institute of Advanced Legal Studies have announced the Program and Registration for the Sixth International Conference on Clinical Legal Education and Scholarship to be held at Lake Arrowhead, California, from Thursday afternoon, October 27, through Sunday morning, October 30, 2005. Conference organizers report that this year's theme of "Enriching Clinical Education" has drawn a remarkable range of papers from clinicians around the nation and across the world.

Conference theme: The conference is centered on four broad themes: Skills Training Revisited, Structuring the Clinical Experience, Learning from Other Perspectives and the Globalization of Clinical Legal Education. Under these broad rubrics, the schedule offers a series of panels that describe and evaluate ways in which clinical pedagogy is responding to the challenge of preparing our students to work in an increasingly complex, multi-party, technologically sophisticated, interdisciplinary, global legal world.
Conference structure: Panel topics range from broad themes of revisiting the relationship between social justice and the clinic; to individual perspectives on how to design an effective clinic; and discrete topics of client counseling and interviewing such as how using an interpreter changes the lawyer-client relationship or prediction issues in client counseling. Other panels take a look at empirical work on measuring lawyer competence and structuring sophisticated simulations. Given the remarkable growth of the clinical movement worldwide in recent years, we have also scheduled significant conference time to an examination of this phenomenon. We are pleased to report that panelists include clinicians from Australia, China, England, India, Israel, Japan, Russia, and Scotland.
