Session Abstract: Challenges of the clinical Legal Education in Law Faculties at Arab Universities The Legal clinics are important tools to develop the clinical legal education in the Arab universities by integration between theory and practice instead of the theoretical learning in the Arab Universities for several decades. Since the first legal clinic in the Arab world has been established at Jerusalem University in Palestine in 2006, many legal clinics were established later in faculties of law at Arab universities. Now there are legal clinics in most of law faculties in Arab universities. Although every year more legal clinics are established, the legal education in the Arab universities still faces the same problems that were found before the legal clinics. The cause of ineffectiveness of the legal clinics due to some challenges that prevent the legal clinics in the Arab universities from achieving their aims. In this article I will discuss the reality of the legal clinics in law faculties at Arab universities, challenges that prevent it from achieving its goals and mechanisms of overcoming these challenges.
