This book describes the history, present status and possible future models of clinical legal education (CLE) in 12 Asian jurisdictions: China, Hong Kong, India, Palestine, Singapore, Thailand, Turkey, Israel, Japan, Taiwan, Maldives, and South Korea. Contributors use case studies from each country to show that while CLE in Asia could initially have been described as an Anglo-Western style of legal education teaching, it has evolved past that framework. While it remains in an early development stage, CLE throughout Asia has both incorporated the core values established by traditional Western legal education theorists and developed its own Asian characteristics. Conclusions drawn from this important research have great utility for those involved with legal clinics across the globe.

Chapter III presents worthwhile, imaginative ideas that are used at other institutions. Chapter IV consists of a thematic index that lists each program or approach under general program theme or pedagogic approach categories, such as foreign languages, study abroad, and integrated curriculum.

Leadership and sustainability have separately been the subject of numerous studies in a built environment context over the years, but they have yet to be addressed together. The real impact of legislation and guidelines designed to promote sustainability within the construction industry is closely linked to the leadership behind it, as this book explores in a variety of ways. Featuring research from 5 different continents, the international scope of this book allows a comparison of experiences in different types of economies and cultures. The interdisciplinarity of this subject is also reflected in the backgrounds of the contributors, with a significant number of perspectives derived from business and management research. The issues examined in this book are essential reading for all researchers, decision-makers and graduate students in the built environment.
