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 assist lawyers in effectively advocating for their clients. This hands-on guide puts individual client advocacy at its centre with information on how to interview and counsel clients and how to strategize, negotiate, and verbally advocate for clients.

Clinical Law focuses on the different contexts in which clinical law is practised. The text discusses practical approaches to building relationships with clients and communities, and explores the future of clinical legal practice.

"The authors articulate a strong commitment to the potential of the legal clinic to advance broader social justice goals, and this is an important consideration throughout the book. The final chapter on systemic advocacy points to the potential for the legal clinic to address social problems in a manner that has real value for clients. I particularly appreciated the 'lessons from the field,' a real-world example illustrating the use of collaboration to address the social problems that confront legal clinic clients."
