This Article begins with a description of educational contracting and a review of the literature. The body of the Article focuses on our use of formal, written learning contracts in a clinical course taught at Georgetown University Law Center. We describe the method of contracting, the key provisions of most contracts and the response of students to the use of this device. Finally, we speculate about possible uses of learning contracts in nonclinical law school offerings.
