HREA and COLPI publish manual on street law-type teaching clinics

Cambridge, 10 March 2002 -- HREA and COLPI have published manual on street law-type teaching clinics. The Manual on Street Law-Type Teaching Clinics at Law Faculties, written by Felisa Tibbitts of HREA and distributed by the Constitutional and Legal Policy Institute (COLPI) in Budapest, is now available in English and Russian. The manual was developed by HREA in cooperation with Street Law, Inc., an international NGO dedicated to educating young people about law, human rights and democracy.

The 92-page manual draws heavily from experiences in Central and Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union in providing practical suggestions for setting up a teaching clinic at law schools, where law students teach everyday law to the public. These clinics typically have a human rights component.

The manual was written for law faculty and others interested to initiate a programme. Copies of the manual are available on-line in English and Russian. If you are interested in setting up a street law programme, or want to find out more, click here.
