Learning and Feedback in Clinic
Students in the clinic start by PREPARING–for example, to write a brief, conduct a witness meeting, or argue a case. They often prepare several drafts of briefs or hearing outlines. While preparing, students learn from supervisors, their peers, and their clients. Students then DO: they conduct the hearing, or file the brief. Afterward, they REFLECT: what went as expected, and what were the surprises? Finally, they REVISE: what changes in preparation would they make next time? How can they learn from their experience?
