RETHINKING LEGAL EDUCATION IN TIMES OF CRISIS Some Remarks from the Case of the Roma Tre Migration and Citizenship Law Clinic

The article provides a critical understanding of the expansion of clinical legal education in Italy, which have occurred in the last decade, in order to investigate the meaning of the implementation of law clinics in Italian law departments and its role in rethinking legal education methods and practice. In this light, the paper will not deal with the issue of the definition of law clinic, which fuels the debate among clinical scholars. Rather, it will analyse the evolution of clinical legal education through the lens of the concept of ‘crisis’. Intended as a situation in which social processes, actors and forces push for a rethinking of legal knowledge categories and teaching methods, ‘crisis’ will provide a critical analytical framework through which to reflect on the unconventional approach to law and legal education that law clinics foster. In the following sections, the article will build on practical examples from the experience of the Roma Tre Migration and Citizenship Law Clinic to show, on the one hand, how a law clinic can become a relevant actor in promoting access to justice for marginalized people and groups; on the other, how it can carry out activities that – by linking research and social engagement – lead students to develop a critical approach toward law and legal instruments, deepening their understanding of the relation between law and social phenomena.

A reflection on the the Influence of Comparative Law in Teaching “Street Law” in Italy

This paper analyzes various comparative-law features inherent to teaching “Street Law” in Italy, a legal clinic now offered at Roma Tre’s Law Department. The clinic examines basic legal notions such as the rule of law, democracy and justice, framed around active-citizenship initiatives enabled by the principle of horizontal subsidiarity. Street Law presents these concepts using learner-based, interactive methodology – typical of all legal clinics – in a “train-the-trainer” format. As part of the clinic, the law students in turn teach these concepts to high school students in several theoretical and hands-on lessons at a local high school, resulting in “peer-to-peer” teaching. Not surprisingly, Street Law, initiated by student-activists in Washington DC in the early 1970s, is deeply infused with common-law legal-education methodology and principles. Traditional lecture-based methods typical of civil-law legal education give way to the Socratic method, guided discussions, guest speakers, onsite visits to local government offices, role-play, games and other hands-on activities designed to engage students in a challenging, new experience aimed at both increasing their practical skills and mastering legal principles. This paper will analyze the methodological aspects of the course, and the policy guidelines embedded in soft-law provisions emanating from various sources that offer sound rationales for including Street Law in legal education. It will also review the comparative-law notions inherent to the clinic that extend also to substantive legal concepts such as subsidiarity, a largely European notion,1 seeking parallels to it in the American legal system, as well as several of the fundamental rights and duties of democracy
