A 2020 vision of clinical legal education in Australia

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter (Book)Researchpeer-review


In 1984, the Journal of Legal Education published an article by Anthony Amsterdam entitled ‘Clinical Legal Education – A 21st Century Perspective’ which outlined his vision for clinical legal education in the USA from ‘the enlightened 21st Century’. This chapter attempts to provide a similar account, this time from an Australian perspective. It considers where clinics have come from and where they might go in 13 years between now and 2020, looking at some developments that might happen, some ‘wish-list’ items as well as other changes that clinic teachers may fear will come to pass.
