Clinical Law: Practice, Theory, and Social Justice Advocacy is the first Canadian text of its kind to integrate the theories of clinical law and provide a set of practical tools to assist lawyers in effectively advocating for their clients. This hands-on guide puts individual client advocacy at its centre with information on how to interview and counsel clients and how to strategize, negotiate, and verbally advocate for their clients.
Clinical Law focuses on the different contexts in which clinical law is practised. The text discusses practical approaches to building relationships with clients and communities, and explores the future of clinical legal practice.
