Students, Faculty Benefiting from New Clinic Space
Students and faculty are benefiting from the newly renovated Clinical Education Program facilities on the first floor of Anheuser-Busch Hall.
The law school recently held a celebration of the Clinical Education Program’s new leadership, faculty, facilities, and programs. In addition to tours of the new clinic facilities, the event featured remarks by law school alumnus Judge Richard Teitelman, JD '73, Missouri Supreme Court; Dean Kent D. Syverud; and Annette R. Appell, professor of law and associate dean of clinical affairs.
The new facilities, which opened in time for the fall semester, are designed to enhance the academic and administrative integration of the clinical programs. The dynamic new space allows in-house clinics to operate using a law firm model and facilitates student and faculty collaboration across clinics. It also separates public space and confidential work areas to enhance greater integration of the clinic and the larger law school. Additionally, it includes faculty offices, different configurations of student work spaces, conference rooms, waiting areas, and interview rooms.
