In 2006, the Network of University Legal Aid Institutions (NULAI Nigeria) developed a Clinical Legal Education Curriculum for Nigerian Universities‚ Law Faculties and Law Clinics. Many Law Clinics adopted the curriculum. After using it for many years, NULAI Nigeria with the support of MacArthur Foundation set up a committee to review the curriculum and suggest more detailed lessons to guide clinical law teachers and students in the clinics‚ academic and service programmes. The reviewed curriculum was further subjected to a discussion at a conference attended by many clinical law teachers to validate the review based on our shared experience.Clinical Legal Education: Curriculum, Lessons and Materials is a product of the in-depth review. The contents are meant to serve as a model providing guidance only to any Law Faculty, Law Clinic, Law Teacher or Trainer. The user is free to modify the curriculum and lessons as much as needful.
