The subject of this article is law school clinics. Stanford Law School is the first law school to start such a clinic. About the productivity of the clinic, Professor Pamela S. Karlan says:

The justices have agreed to hear six of the 12 or 15 cases brought to them by the Stanford clinic since its inception, according to its co-director, Pamela Karlan.

Karlan said she spends up to 60 hours a week working with students in addition to teaching one or two other courses.
