Excerpts from a paper delivered at a conference on clinical practice at the University of Chicago, November 1, 1969
In the spring of 1969 the faculty approved "Clinical Law" on an experimental basis. I had asked the faculty to authorize a course for six or eight semester credit hours but the faculty consensus was that four hours was sufficient time to be devoted to such an experimental course. On the optimistic assumption that a student gives 40 hours of his time for each semester credit hour that he receives, we concluded that a student should perform 160 hours of work in the clinic to receive his four-credit hours.
