I am the director of the Law Centre Clinical Program. The Law Centre provides law students with the opportunity to learn through a rigorous four-week intensive, skills development, orientation followed by a three-month period in which they handle files full-time on behalf of clients, under close supervision, in a model law office setting.

As director of the Law Centre Clinical Law Program, I am responsible for its educational content. I personally conduct most of the classes held during the four week orientation period. I am also responsible for all aspects of the administration of the clinical program.

My teaching and research interests focus on clinical legal education, public legal education, lawyering skills, the application of social science research to develop strategies and techniques to improve the delivery of legal services.
