Chuck,

At Southern IL U., a large university in a rural environment, their clinics ARE the non-profit legal providers...few other legal service corp. providers around. Clinical experience was the best and most useful aspect of my legal education.

I hear from many students, and some lawyers, that the clinical experience was good and useful, but I can only wonder if the money isn't better spent on learning doctrine. What am I missing if I forego taking clinic and take Trusts & Estates and UCC III, or Real Estate instead? In practice we will be required to both learn practice procedures and become familiar with specific bodies of law. Which will be a bigger hassle to learn on the fly? Assuming we actually learn something from the classes we attend, and that good legal analysis is at least part of being a good lawyer, what is the cost of learning to function in practice while practicing vs. having the experience in law school at the expense of substantive courses?
