CLEA exists to advocate for clinical legal education as fundamental to the education of lawyers. CLEA and its members seek to: 

  • foster excellent teaching and scholarship by clinical educators;
  • integrate clinical teaching and extend its methods into the legal education program of every law school; 
  • reform legal education so as to prepare law students for excellent and reflective law practice;
  • advance regulation of legal education that insures the continued vitality of clinical education in law schools; and 
  • pursue and promote justice and diversity as core values of the legal profession.
