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.
