The course combines an interactive format with a substantive investigation
of the lawyers’ role as counselor, advocate, representative
and public citizen. Students read a range of essays, personal narratives,
and client accounts as they consider the nature of the profession
they are about to enter. Second and third year students, selected
because they excelled in a previous class, work as teaching fellows
to help organize the complex logistics. The faculty shares power
with the students and gives them a chance to learn through experimentation.
The course fulfills students’ ABA professional responsibility
