Abstract

Researchers use self-reflection and personal narrative as a lens through which to identify thoughts and feelings about lived experience. This article uses reflexivity in order to capture, critique and develop small group work practice in clinical legal education. It draws on the concept of constructivism and queries whether small group work in a clinical setting can truly be a paradigm of student-centred teaching. At its core, it argues that an authentic student-centred approach is best achieved when power is transferred to clinic students and they are given the opportunity to lead their own group work.
