Enhancing    Clinical Legal Education: Facing      Challenges   and   Exploring
Possibilities
Dr. Lyndsey Bengtsson
Lvndsey2.bengtsson@northumbria.ac.uk
In our spring edition, readers will benefit from an analysis of the variety of ways in
which clinical legal education can be enhanced. Contributors consider how social
justice teaching can be developed and the role clinics can play in supporting access
to justice in the local community. We also delve into ways in which clinics can
enhance reflection, legal analysis and our students' ability to both understand and
implement approaches which might build trust with their clients.
Firstly, Jacqueline Weinberg's article explores the challenges of instilling in students
the notion that social justice is important. One challenge is the expansion of clinical
legal education and growth of externships where students are increasingly placed in
law firms where their clients do not face barriers to access to justice. She explores
how these challenges can be overcome to enhance students' awareness of the
importance of social justice and ensure that it remains a value they retain as future
practitioners.
