In his Essay Professor Boswell traces the progress of the clinical movement from the margins of the academy in the 1960s to its more mainstream position today. He contends that, because of various forces (including the availability of tenure), clinical scholarship has begun to merely emulate traditional scholarship. He notes the shift of clinical emphasis from the client to scholarly development of theoretical models. Professor Boswell calls for a return to the original purpose of clinical programs- bridging the distance between theory and practice.
