Target Audience: Librarians of all levels who want to become better integrated with courses, students, and faculty
Learning Outcomes:
1. Participants will be able to demonstrate to faculty how libraries can enhance a law school's opportunities for experiential education.
2. Participants will be able to identify ways to integrate themselves into Course Management Systems.

Clinical education provides law librarians with a tremendous teaching opportunity for many reasons. First, the clinics are in line with the Carnegie Report's recommendation for experiential learning. The classes are relevant and specific, which benefits adult learners. Second, many clinics are transactional. Librarians can teach an area not often covered in the traditional legal research curriculum. Finally, librarians can become integrated in Course Management Systems (CMS). CMS software generally excludes libraries in their design, so faculty members overlook the role librarians can play in their classes. During this session, a panel of librarians will discuss the role their libraries play in clinical education, and provide suggestions on how your library can become better integrated with your law school clinics.
