Professor Kristina Campbell's blog article, "Service-Learning: Who is Serving Whom?" is the first of a series being published in the Clinical Law Professor Blog.  

Here is a snippet of what Professor Campbell wrote:

In this post, I want to start with what I think is the core question at the heart of service-learning: who is serving whom? Are we, the students and professors, serving the migrants we met in the shelters, the soup kitchens, and community centers in Mexico? Were we serving the people of Tucson by providing brief legal services and know-your-rights presentations? Or were the people we came in contact with during our week on the border serving us - telling us their stories, letting us into their lives and modeling for us what it means to be a parent providing for his child, an activist working to better her community, or a humanitarian leaving water in the desert so that a life might be saved?
