Five Habits of Cross-Cultural Lawyering and More

Sue Bryant and Jean Koh Peters

Website that provides teaching and practice materials about cross-cultural lawyering in clinical legal education. We believe that all lawyering is cross-cultural, so teaching about cross-cultural lawyering is necessary if clinical students are to provide quality representation to their clients. We also believe that the measure of good cross-cultural lawyering is the respect a lawyer has for her client’s dignity, voice, and story, and the lawyer’s understanding of her own biases and ethnocentric world views. The five Habits can enable lawyers to show their clients this respect and develop this understanding.
