Title of Presentation : Transforming Students, Transforming Selves: Teaching and Learning about Social Change in Context. Three Models of International Comparative Clinical Cooperation
Short Abstract : In a globalized world, it is imperative that legal educators design innovative international programs that provide students with the opportunity to engage in experiential learning through direct social justice lawyering. Such programming will promote inter-cultural legal competence, and opportunities for comparative law analysis that will promote critical thinking about justice and legal systems. Attendees will be invited to engage in an interactive discussion of program design, and the difficulties associated with establishing and running such programs, through the experience of educators who have been involved in such endeavors. Presenters will describe three innovative programs: 1) The Winter Intersession India International & Comparative Human Rights Law Practicum in New Delhi 2) The Inter-American Program in Guatemala and 3) The Suffolk-Haifa Clinical Legal Exchange Program in Boston, U.S.A. and Haifa, Israel.
