This plenary will present methods and materials to help structure conversations about evaluating proposals for new experiential offerings. We will share experiences of various law schools with new forms of experiential learning, with particular focus on courses in which students work under supervision from outside the law school. We intend to help participants identify the benefits and risks of new forms of experiential learning, to navigate the challenges of deciding whether to endorse or oppose these proposals, and, when appropriate, to strengthen new experiential offerings by sharing clinical teaching pedagogies between in-house clinics, externship courses, and other experiential courses.
