October is Action Step # 8: Integrating New Knowledge into Legal Education and Training

There is an important role for law schools and other legal educators (including continuing legal education providers and judicial educators) in integrating new knowledge about SRL’s and debating changes in traditional legal services in order to relate to and to serve SRLs.

During October, we shall be reaching out to legal educators in order to develop a list of emerging best practices that inform and prepare law students, practitioners and members of the Bench to work with SRLs. Our goal this month is to develop a preliminary “SRL Curriculum” for the law schools and other legal education providers that includes a checklist of knowledge, skills and attitudes that educators regard as important to empower law students, lawyers and judges, by building on their current training and expertise, to equip them to work effectively with SRLs.

    To develop a preliminary “SRL Curriculum” for the law schools etc, is a noble first attempt to not only acknowledge the dire need thereof, but additionally to help a failing system make fundamental adjustments to its presently archaic mal-adjusted practices.

    I wish you all my most encouraging, Thanks-Giving, kudos!
