What is Experiential Learning?

Law IAC

We hope that all students will join us at the College of Law’s Experiential Education Fair and Clinic tour on Wednesday, February 8 at noon and 5:00 pm in the law school’s atrium.  You might be wondering what experiential education is, how it helps law students, and what opportunities law students have for experiential education at Georgia State law.  Here’s what the expert, Georgia State Law’s Dean of Experiential Education, Professor Lisa Bliss, says:

“The most powerful learning for law students occurs when they are able to link theory and practice. Georgia State Law students receive a strong foundation in academics, blended with practical skills education throughout the three years of law school. Our experiential curriculum allows students to become immersed in the practice of law through clinics, specialized courses that incorporate clients, externships and other courses that simulate working in a firm solving client matters.”
