legal education, University of Western Ontario, clinical education, Canada


This paper describes the implementation of a clinical legal education program at the University of Western Ontario. By coincidence, the paper was completed just as a major change in direction was unfolding in the program. The origin and purposes of clinical education I will leave to another occasion. Suffice it to say that my answer to the question, "does a law school need clinical education?", is a resounding "yes".
