Alternative dispute resolution (ADR) and clinical legal education share overlapping goals of advancing social justice. This chapter examines the impact that the integration of ADR into the clinical curriculum has had or might have in law schools in India, South Africa, and the United States. Many legal educators in these countries believe that teaching and practicing ADR in clinical courses is crucial to the development of a social justice consciousness in law students and to the preparation of competent and ethical law graduates. The chapter asserts that clinical programs that teach and practice ADR can inform, improve, and reform not only legal education, but also—over time—the practice of law and the legal profession as well, thereby furthering the social justice goals of the global clinical movement.
