Best Practices In Legal Education: The Sequel

Following the lead of franchises like Wagner's Ring, Star Wars, and Mutiny on the Bounty, CLEA's Best Practices Implementation Committee is producing a sequel to its 2007 megahit, Best Practices in Legal Education: A Vision and a Roadmap.  The book is tentatively titled “Building on Best Practices: The Walls are Coming Down,” and it is being edited by Deborah Maranville and Antoinette Sedillo-Lopez.  It is expected to appear in a theater near you in late 2013 or early 2014.

"Among the topics to be addressed in the new book are the following:

• Setting goals for the program of instruction – mission statements

• Professional Identity
• Interdisciplinary
• International
• Integration and Problem-solving
• Pro Bono
• Intercultural Competence
• Experiential
• Externships
• Technology
• Delivery of instruction

• Assessing student learning
• Assessing institutional effectiveness".

The above quote is from an email from Lisa Bliss, co-chair of the Best Practices Implementation Committee.
