Walking   the talk: clinic and our values

Is clinical legal education an inherently moral undertaking? In this issue of the

IJCLE, we have  three papers linked by their focus on the underpinning values of

CLE: whether we  can transmit our values through the clinic experience; whether we

can most effectively teach ethics through clinic and whether our commitment to and

belief in clinic should be expressed by bringing it from the margins to the centre of

legal education.

There is a common perception amongst educators that we transmit our values tacitly

through the curriculum and that, by providing students with a particular kind of

learning experience, we create in them specific dispositions. The logical formula

appears to run:

    1. We embed  the values in the structure of the curriculum (e.g. by running a pro

       bono clinic)

    2. We engage students in the activity

    3. They absorb the values and become active agents pursuing those values in

       future activities.
