University law clinics play an important role in training law graduates for the legal profession. Law clinics are traditionally understood to have two main objectives: Teaching law students the practice of law; and providing free legal services to indigent members of the community. However, they are now also focusing on introducing law graduates to the legal fraternity. They do so by recruiting candidate attorneys who are then allocated supervisors - clinicians who are lawyers within those law clinics - to train and prepare them for the practice of law. It is important that such candidate attorneys receive adequate supervision within these law clinics.
