Professor Jeff Baker Publishes Clinical Pedagogy Training Course Handbook for Clinical Legal Education Programs
Professor Jeffrey R. Baker has published the Clinical Pedagogy Training Course Handbook, which is part of the Clinical Legal Education Association's companion series. The Asia Foundation, in cooperation with the Philippine's Legal Education Board and the Supreme Court Oversight Commission, has published the series to support its major project to advance Clinical Legal Education Programs in Philippines law schools. Volume 4 of the series is Professor Baker's Clinical Pedagogy Training Course Handbook, which is an adaptation of his seven-week course on clinical pedagogy for law schools throughout the Philippines. The course and handbook address program and course design, clinical law practice and supervision, teaching and professional formation, ethics and access to justice.
The Asia Foundation and its partners developed this multimodal program to encourage implementation of the Philippines new requirement that all law schools develop programs for clinical legal education. In addition to the course and the handbook, Professor Baker consulted with multiple law schools throughout 2022 and 2023 and has spoken at several online conferences and seminars on clinical legal education. The handbook will be available to law schools throughout the Philippines as they launch and develop clinical programs to teach law students and advance access to justice in their communities.
