Julia Hernandez co-authors “Clinicians Reflect on COVID-19: Lessons Learned and Looking Beyond” in Clinical Law Review as part of the Duke Law School Public Law & Legal Theory Series. The article reviews the responses of 220 clinicians to survey questions relating to how law clinics and clinicians were treated by their institutions as they navigated these changes and then examines the disparate impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on clinicians and sheds light on some of the distinct challenges they faced.
