Professor Stefan Krieger recently published his essay “The Stories Clinicians Tell,” 24 International Journal of Clinical Legal Education 246 (2017), which describes his collaboration with Palacky University in Olomouc, Czech Republic, in the 1990s, establishing the first legal clinic at a law school in Central Europe.

This piece, as well as an accompanying introductory essay by two current clinicians at Palacky, describes the pitfalls and challenges faced in the development of legal clinics in newly democratic legal systems.
