These materials are purposefully designed as a starting point for law student discussion and application of the various lawyering skills and values addressed in the manual. To the extent the materials are basic or possibly repetitive of materials, particularly rules and statutes, that may have been previously studied by some students in other law courses, apologies are given. However, experience has shown that not all clinical students have taken the same courses and discussions of the same basic materials in a clinical context have revealed many new dimensions. The decision was to include basic materials, rules, statutes, and concepts to insure that all students in the law clinic have the same basic grasp of core concepts within each area addressed. Students in the Law Clinic also tend to re-read many of these previously studied materials with a new appreciation for detail.
