Abstract:Clinical legal education is a method of teaching fundamental legal skills through experiential learning. The experience of law schools in the United States of America and South Africa with clinical methods suggests lessons for the development of skills training programmes in the curriculum of the National University of Lesotho law school. The current system of internship needs reshaping. A pre-admission practical legal training programme should be established. The South African street law programme is worth importing and adapting to Lesothan social justice issues. Notes, ref. [ASC Leiden abstract]
