April 3 Conference at Rutgers–Newark Law School to Celebrate 40 Years of Clinical Education and Honor Arthur Kinoy and Frank Askin


            Newark, NJ, – On Friday, April 3, Rutgers School of Law–Newark will celebrate its 40-year-old clinical program and honor two key figures in the notable success and national influence of the Rutgers–Newark legal clinics. In September 2008 National Jurist magazine ranked the program 13th in the country for “Best in Practical Training.”

            “The Legacy of Arthur Kinoy and the Inspirational and Collaborative Dimensions of Clinical Legal Education: Honoring 40 Years of Clinics at Rutgers–Newark” will examine the goals of clinical education as advocated by Rutgers law professor and legendary civil rights advocate Arthur Kinoy. The luncheon will posthumously honor Kinoy for his vision and leadership and for inspiring many students to careers in public interest law. The luncheon will also honor Professor Frank Askin Â’66, the most senior member of the current faculty, for creating and implementing clinics during his 40-years at Rutgers. The conference will conclude with a discussion of the role of clinical programs in promoting collaborations with law firm pro bono departments, public interest organizations, and other partners. Speakers, many of whom are graduates of the law school, are leaders of the private and public bar and of clinical legal education.
