UNM School of Law Clinical Law Program Conducts Innovation Summit

The UNM School of Law clinical faculty hosted an Innovation Summit this fall for the entire law school community to explore innovations within the Clinic and to encourage innovations within the broader law school curriculum.

Emeritus Professor and Pincus Award recipient Mike Norwood kicked off the Summit with a discussion of our longstanding history covering 40 years of innovation in clinical legal education.

Professor Aliza Organick followed with a survey of innovations from across the nation.

Participants then brainstormed dozens of ideas to build an agenda for change, including improving the level of student preparation for the Clinic, determining the expectations of students and employers for the clinical experience, and planning a working group to implement selected ideas.

The successful day closed with an Innovation Summit celebration featuring live music presented by three faculty and their "Keep Your Day Job" band.
