We’re excited to hear from Linda Smith at the ITLA 2019 Fall Seminar taking place Friday, October 4 at the Snow King Resort in Jackson Hole, Wyoming.

Volunteering at an advice clinic is one of the best ways to donate your time and expertise. But, are you doing it right? SJ Quinney College of Law Professor Linda Smith will discuss common errors and omissions that take place at brief advice clinics and the skills and ethics necessary to avoid them.
Professor of Law and former Clinical Program Director, Professor Smith directed and developed the Clinical Program over three decades, receiving the University of Utah Distinguished Service Award in 2006 in recognition of this work. She aspires to combine students' service with their study of lawyering skills and ethics to produce greater self-knowledge while providing representation to needy clients and governmental entities. She writes about the pedagogy of clinical legal education and civic engagement, and she focuses on the intersection of the lawyer's skills and ethics. More recently, she has focused on the skills of client interviewing from the perspective of conversation analysis. Her scholarly work, her teaching, and her service merge in her writings about pro bono programs and the need to provide access to justice for all.
