Professor Lindsay M. Harris works closely with UDC Law’s diverse student population in her dual role as Professor and Co-Director of the Immigration & Human Rights Clinic. Part of that work sometimes means deciding how best to help students who are going through tough personal or professional times. By no means an easy question or one with a universal answer, Harris offers her take in a post for Clinical Law Prof Blog.

Harris writes, “The question is, when do you self-disclose with students, and what are the risks and benefits? In many ways, in a clinical setting we are asking students to become reflective lawyers. We ask that they constantly assess their goals, their progress, and what they bring to the lawyering experience. In a way, with self-disclosure, we are modeling for students what we ask them to do in terms of being introspective and self-aware attorneys.
