“Clinical Professors’ Professional Responsibility: Preparing Law Students to Embrace Pro Bono”

This new article by Professor Douglas Colbert is now available on SSRN.  Colbert suggests that law professors assume a critical role in law students’ decision to embrace or reject its pro bono ethical obligation. The author focuses on clinical faculty and suggests that its leadership within the academy will be crucial to bridge colleagues’ world of theory and doctrine, and to connect with practicing lawyers. He illustrates clinical faculty’s unique opportunity to incorporate the Model Rules of Professional Conduct by referring to the law reform and individual representation work that his clinical students perform. The author concludes by declaring clinical education presents an ideal opportunity for teaching students to appreciate their professional responsibility to promote access to justice and to embrace pro bono service as an integral element of a lawyer’s professional life.
