Professor Susan L. Brooks will give a keynote address, “Teaching Relational Lawyering in Experiential Courses and Programs,” at the Australian Clinical Education Symposium on April 6.
The symposium, which focuses on Clinical Legal Education in an Agile Legal Environment, will be held at the University of New South Wales in Sydney, Australia.
Brooks will explore relational lawyering, an interdisciplinary framework that focuses on habits of mind and practices that positively contribute to law students’ professional identity formation and well-being. Her remarks will consider personal, interpersonal and systemic dimensions of relational habits.
The associate dean for experiential learning, Brooks has published widely on the topics of experiential legal education, therapeutic jurisprudence and relationship-centered approaches to representing clients. Most recently, “Learning from Practice,” a book she co-edited, was published in its third edition.
