Bruce Green in the New York Law Journal: Experiential Learning: Practice Makes Perfect

Prof. Bruce Green published "Experiential Learning: Practice Makes Perfect" in the New York Law Journal, April 21, 2014, including descriptions of programs at Fordham, Cardozo, NYLS and NYU.

An excerpt:

Extensive thought and planning go into law schools' experiential offerings to ensure that they provide more than just on-the-job training. Clinical professors give students much more supervision, feedback and critique than new lawyers receive in actual practice because clinics expressly aim to use legal work as a focal point for learning. Clinical and other experiential courses typically adopt an ambitious educational agenda. A 2007 guide to best practices for law teaching identified the primary objectives of experiential courses to be helping students adjust to their roles as professionals, helping students become better legal problem-solvers, helping students develop interpersonal and professional skills, and helping students learn how to learn from experience.
