  7. Director of Experiential Education

    Professor Donovan named AMSL’s first Director of Experiential Education

    AMSL has named Associate Clinical Professor of Law Elizabeth M. Donovan as its first Director of Experiential Education. Experiential education has become an increasingly important component of legal education, as endorsed by the ABA. The Law School clinics, as well as certain externships, provide access to legal representation and advocacy for members of our society who would otherwise be denied full access to the legal system. Both programs also provide students with in-depth exposure to the actual practice of law on behalf of real clients and private and public entities. Providing opportunities for students to learn the practice of law by assisting actual clients, under the supervision of experienced practitioners, facilitates the development of lawyering skills.
