Clinical professor to give Fuchs Lecture at Maurer

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

A nationally known leader in clinical education will deliver the Ralph F. Fuchs Lecture at Indiana University Maurer School of Law Oct. 8 on the impact of in-house clinics on law students.

Elliot S. Milstein, professor of law at the Washington College of Law at American University in Washington, D.C., will speak on “Uncertainty, Indeterminacy and the Law School Curriculum.” He will discuss how the content and methodology of what is taught in an in-house clinic can prepare students to gain confidence that the theories they develop from experience can guide their behavior as lawyers.

Milstein has been a clinical teacher since 1969 and founded the Washington College of Law’s clinical program. He’s been a leader in the development of the concepts and methods that are the basis for in-house clinical education and has trained or mentored many clinical teachers.

The Fuchs Lecture is named in honor of Ralph F. Fuchs, a professor of law at Indiana University from 1946 to 1970. He was later awarded the title of university professor in honor of his scholarship, teaching and public service.

The lecture is free and open to the public, and continuing legal education credit has been applied for. The lecture begins at noon in Room 123 at the law school, 211 S. Indiana Ave., Bloomington, Ind.

  1. Based on several recent Indy Star articles, I would agree that being a case worker would be really hard. You would see the worst of humanity on a daily basis; and when things go wrong guess who gets blamed??!! Not biological parent!! Best of luck to those who entered that line of work.

  2. I was looking through some of your blog posts on this internet site and I conceive this web site is rattling informative ! Keep on posting . dfkcfdkdgbekdffe

  3. Don't believe me, listen to Pacino: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z6bC9w9cH-M

  4. Law school is social control the goal to produce a social product. As such it began after the Revolution and has nearly ruined us to this day: "“Scarcely any political question arises in the United States which is not resolved, sooner or later, into a judicial question. Hence all parties are obliged to borrow, in their daily controversies, the ideas, and even the language, peculiar to judicial proceedings. As most public men [i.e., politicians] are, or have been, legal practitioners, they introduce the customs and technicalities of their profession into the management of public affairs. The jury extends this habitude to all classes. The language of the law thus becomes, in some measure, a vulgar tongue; the spirit of the law, which is produced in the schools and courts of justice, gradually penetrates beyond their walls into the bosom of society, where it descends to the lowest classes, so that at last the whole people contract the habits and the tastes of the judicial magistrate.” ? Alexis de Tocqueville, Democracy in America

  5. Attorney? Really? Or is it former attorney? Status with the Ind St Ct? Status with federal court, with SCOTUS? This is a legal newspaper, or should I look elsewhere?
