Clinic Directors Jane Wettach and Theresa Newman J.D.'88 will describe the remarkable work of Duke Law students in the provision of direct client services, ranging from gaining access to critical educational services for disabled children to securing freedom for the wrongfully convicted. Clinical work has become an integral part of the law school experience for most Duke Law students, allowing them to test their emerging legal skills in a structured but real-world setting. When justice is achieved, both clients and law students are profoundly changed. Specific Location: Akerman LLP, Three Brickell City Centre, 98 Southeast Seventh Street, Suite 1100, Miami, FL 33131.
