Professor Cavazos was a panelist on “Balancing Interest” at the AALS 40th Annual Conference on Clinical Legal Education on May 6, 2017, at the Directors’ workshop, titled: “Serving the Client in Tumultuous Times: Fostering Responsibility to Individuals, Communities, and Society in Clinical Legal Education” in Denver, Colorado. The audience included Directors and Deans of Experiential Learning participants from law schools throughout the United States. This session focused on how law schools and clinical programs are navigating pivotal moments of change, challenge, and opportunity, how each program and school contend with competing interest and pressures, and why old models resist new models particularly when the market demands competitive innovation. The conversation was also directed at the new ABA rules and how to build effective narratives to advance the work of clinics and externships in local context.
