This publication is addressed to students and the faculty? the managers of legal clinics. Students will find here a repository of knowledge on the idea, the history and the rules that govern the functioning of legal clinics. Members of the faculty will find here practical knowledge on how to organize the work of a legal clinic and how to best teach within its framework, as well as pointers on how to prepare students to lend assistance to clients. On behalf of the Board of the Legal Clinics Foundation I would like to express my gratitude to all persons who have contributed to the creation of this publication.
