Title: Requiring a Live Client, In-House Clinical Course: A Report on the University of New Mexico Law School Experience
Author: Norwood, J. Michael
Abstract: This article explores the University of New Mexico's response to the following issues: What are the fundamental goals of professional skills training? Should skills training be taught through simulation, supervised real client representation, or a combination of both? What should be the status or faculty rank within the law school academy of those who teach professional skills? What is clinical scholarship and what is its role in the legal profession and the academy? What is the proper emphasis to be placed on skills training within the context of the overall curriculum? How much, and what type of professional skills training is financially feasible? If experience with real client representation is an important component of professional skills training, should it be provided through a law school operated law office or by placing students with law offices and agencies outside the law school's control? How should skills training be integrated into the curriculum and educational mission of the law school?
