Abstract: Nationwide, experiential learning is taking off as law schools continue to commit to producing practice-ready graduates. At Rutgers-Camden our lawyering faculty have developed innovative and collaborative skills programs steeped in the experiential model of learning. For example, Rutgers offers my hybrid writing clinic, Advanced Legal Writing: Community Based Practice. This class gives upper-level students the opportunity to perform research and writing for Philadelphia’s Mazzoni Center, which offers free legal services to low income members of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered (LGBT) communities. As the legal market adapts to leaner economic times, Rutgers and its innovative lawyering curriculum stands ready to meet these challenges, and the school’s partnership with the Mazzoni Center will continue to offer students hands-on practical experience.
