Advancing legal education for all – the role of a journal
AbstractPromoting legal literacy is nothing new. There have been many initiatives, stretching back to the mid 1970s at least, to improve the public’s understanding of their rights (and responsibilities). For example the (then) pioneering and (still) highly influential work of the Georgetown Law School, Washington DC, Street Law team under the direction of Richard Roe and of Street Law Inc, which evolved from this earlier initiative. For an account of this and other street Law programmes see: R. Grimes, E. O’Brien, D. McQuoid-Mason and J. Zimmer Street Law and Social Justice Education, in The Global Clinical Movement: Educating Lawyers for Social Justice, F. Bloch (ed.), OUP, 2010.
