The author considers modern day clinical legal education and suggests that teaching on alternative dispute resolution should be integrated directly into mainstream legal teaching in Scotland. This has a range of benefits such as introducing a multidisciplinary approach, providing an alternative to the 'pathologising' impact of appeal cases and boosting students' practical confidence. This article is based on an address given at the conference entitled “Modernising Scotland’s Justice System – What Next?” on 20 April 2010.
