To be presented at session on Learning Legal Ethics Through Clinic.
The City Law School in London, England, prepares university graduates for entry into the legal profession, teaching both the Legal Practice Course required to become a solicitor and the Bar Professional Training Course required for barristers. In addition to a mandatory course called Professional Ethics, which focuses on professional conduct rules, ethical issues are embedded into required simulation classes such as Conference Skills and Advocacy. Marks are lost for ethical errors and a “red light fail” system comes into play when a student’s simulated conduct would constitute seriously unethical behavior in practice
