The University of Maryland School of Law has made a truly remarkable commitment to clinical legal education. The purpose of this conversation is, first, to acknowledge and describe tensions that are inherent in our dual roles as teachers and legal services providers, and, second, to think about the role that law school clinical programs can play in expanding access to justice for unprivileged and underserved clients and communities. Although these remarks are given in celebration of thirty years of clinical legal education at the University of Maryland, we are also here to talk about the role that law school clinics can and should play in expanding access to justice.
