PEDAGOGICAL FOUNDATIONS OF PROVIDING HIGH-QUALITY STREET
LAW LESSONS BY LAW CLINICS: UKRAINIAN AND POLISH EXPERIENCE


SUMMARY:

The relevance of the issue is caused by the fact that rising legal awareness provided by law clinics as one of the most efficient forms of future law specialists training involves conducting street law lessons, which, in turn, requires proper methodical, psychological and legal support. However, the issue of conducting street law lessons in terms of law clinics functioning in Ukraine still remains understudied. The paper aims to present pedagogical and organizational foundations of providing street law programs by law clinics on the basis of generalizing the main world approaches and the experience of law clinics in Ukraine and Poland. Both countries analyzed (Ukraine and Poland) have their own peculiarities of law clinics’ functioning and providing this kind of lessons. According to the data by 2005, only 20-30% of the law clinics provided legal education in Ukraine. The current-day data according to the List of Law Clinics in Ukraine shows that by the beginning of 2017, only 5 out of 48 ones do not provide legal education, which means that 90% of the Ukrainian law clinics conduct street law lessons. The Polish law clinics chain acknowledges the effect of acquiring professional skills by the students when organizing and conducting street law lessons. Currently street law lessons are provided by about 50% of the general number of law clinics in Poland. As a result of the research, the following principles of street law lessons have been distinguished: the principle of practical focus of the acquired knowledge, as well as close connection of the learning material with everyday needs; the principle of clearness of explanation; the principle of interactive character of the lessons; the principle of accounting for age peculiarities; the principle of equality; as well as the principle of legal culture formation. As a rule, after attending street law lessons school students’ legal awareness in different fields of law raises, because these classes include the discussion of everyday legal issues necessary for modern youth. Due to this, it is very important to prepare the law clinics representatives for potential questions and teach them how to discuss them with school students and clearly explain the difficult things.
