The Law Center’s clinical programs continue reaching across borders both domestically and abroad.
Beginning October 2003, BABSEA CLE Director Bruce A. Lasky began implementing a Clinical Legal Education at Pannasastra University of Cambodia (PUC) Faculty of Law and Public Affairs.
The Paññasastra University of Cambodia- Clinical Legal Education Program is a two-section program. It is divided into a Criminal Law (CL) Section and Community Legal Education Program (CLEP), formerly referrd as “Street Law” Section. Both Sections began in late January 2004.
In July 2004, Professor Rick Roe worked in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, to assist the newly established Street Law program begun by Pannasastra University Law Professor Bruce Lasky. Eschewing traditional lecture format, Roe enlisted students, faculty, and staff in discussions of how law affects their lives in areas such as housing, family relations, advocacy, and literacy. Traveling to the village of Osdao, where Lasky runs a school, Roe and his colleagues conducted a class on dispute resolution. They engaged residents of all ages in a story involving a dispute between two young brothers over a beautiful feather they both discovered simultaneously.
