Most innovative clinics

PreLaw magazine will honor 25 law school clinics for innovation in its Winter issue, including Georgetown University Law Center’s Social Enterprise & Nonprofit Law Clinic and Washington and Lee University School of Law’s Black Lung Legal Clinic.

The magazine sought nominations from law schools nationwide for clinics that were innovative in subject matter, structure or community served. It reviewed nominations from more than 76 law schools, and narrowed the list down to 25. It will recognize 15 clinics as the most innovative and 10 as runners-up.

“The breadth of innovation was impressive and we had to expand the number of honorees from 10 to 25,” said Jack Crittenden, editor in chief of the magazine for prospective law students. A shorter version of the story will also appear in the January issue of The National Jurist.
