Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2023-2024.

Critical Theory in Clinical Practice, open only to students concurrently enrolled in a Cornell Law School clinic, focuses on issues relating to critical theory, social justice, and their intersection with clinical practice. Students will engage with issues of race, gender, class, disability, and other elements of social difference through academic scholarship and in-class exercises, and by exploring how these issues impact their clinic work. Lecture, case rounds, and in-class discussion will form the foundation of instruction. The course seeks to increase community and dialogue amongst clinical students across practice areas, and provide an entry-point into an interdisciplinary, systemic, and critical examination of legal practice representing marginalized, under-resourced, and public interest clients. The class will meet every other week for a total of seven times. Enrollment is limited to students currently enrolled in a Cornell Law School clinic.
