Several members of the law school faculty will share their expertise on preparing students for professional practice via experiential learning at the Association of American Law Schools Conference on Clinical Legal Education on April 30 and May 1 in San Juan, Puerto Rico.
Susan L. Brooks, professor and associate dean for experiential learning, will present on a panel focused on teaching resilience across a diverse clinical curriculum. Brooks will join faculty from Georgetown University Law Center and Suffolk University Law School on the panel.
A second panel exploring several models of experiential learning that the school offers will feature Professor Tracye Edwards, Professor Richard Frankel, Professor Amy Montemarano and Professor Reena Parambath. Joining them is adjunct Professor Deeya Haldar, a supervising attorney with the Philadelphia Legal Assistance Center, a partner in the law school’s Civil Litigation Field Clinic.
The panel will focus on teaching in settings such as the in-house Appellate Litigation Clinic Frankel directs, the Co-op Program that Parambath directs and in which Edwards and Montemarano teach and the Civil Litigation Field Clinic in which Haldar teaches.
