Manual on Street Law-type Teaching Clinics now available on-line
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 education component. The manual was written for law faculty and others interested to initiate a program.
