"The theoretical chapters are written in accessible language, and the links between conceptual issues and on-the-ground impacts for clients, clinicians and students are made clear. Along with the theoretical chapters, the authors include many practical tips relating to skills development, professional practice, and relationship building, which should be very valuable for students."

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 teach students how to effectively advocate for their clients in a legal clinic environment. This hands-on guide puts individual client advocacy at its centre with information on how to interview and counsel clients and how to manage a client file.

Clinical Law is ideal for clinical law courses. The text features discussion questions, notes, and exercises to provide students with accessible information, including the varying contexts in which clinical law is practised, the practical approaches to building relationships with clients and communities, and the future of clinical legal practice.
