Oxford University Press has published THE GLOBAL CLINICAL MOVEMENT: EDUCATING LAWYERS FOR SOCIAL JUSTICE (Frank S. Bloch ed. 2011), an edited volume with contributions by GAJE members from around the world.
THE GLOBAL CLINICAL MOVEMENT describes the central concepts, goals, and methods of clinical legal education from a global perspective, with a particular emphasis on its social justice mission. With chapters written by leading clinical legal educators from every region of the world, the book demonstrates how the emerging global clinical movement can advance social justice through legal education. The book also examines the influence of clinical legal education on the legal academy and the legal profession and charts the global clinical movement’s future role in educating lawyers for social justice. Part I (The Global Reach of Clinical Legal Education) describes clinical legal education programs from every region of the world and discusses those qualities that are unique to a particular country or region. Part II (The Justice Mission of Global Clinical Education) discusses the various ways that clinical programs and the clinical methodology advance the cause of social justice around the world. Part III (The Global Clinical Movement and Educating Lawyers for Social Justice) analyzes the current state of the global clinical movement and sets out an agenda for the movement to advance social justice through socially relevant legal education.
