Abstract

Law school clinics are paramount to developing law school graduates who embrace their "special responsibility for the quality of justice," as well as their role in ensuring equal access to justice for marginalized, impoverished and underserved members of society.' This responsibility permeates every aspect of lawyering, especially the practice of health law. This article explores, first, how clinics and social justice fit into the practice of health law and into the training of future health law attorneys and policymakers. Second, it defines social justice in the context of health and, finally, it provides examples that demonstrate how we can, and why we should, integrate social justice teaching into every law school, every classroom and the practice of health law.
