In this article, Dr. David E. Zammit identifies a lacuna when it comes to hands on legal practice within the course of laws, especially with regards to a lack of appropriate clinical training. However, for the past three years, the Faculty of Laws has been running a course which replicates many of the key features of legal clinics, this being 'Advocacy Skills'. The aim of this article is to inform students about this course and to encourage them to register for it. By building on what has already been done in this regard and coordinating our efforts, we are more likely to succeed in establishing a functioning legal clinic.
Various students and graduates also reflect on the importance of this course and how valuable it was for them.
