After accepting and assigning a client, a clinic will want to track the work being done by students. A case log is simply a spreadsheet that allows the tracking of activity with a particular client. In clinics where students have primary authority over client matters or single term clinics where there will be numerous students working on the same client over time, tracking all the activity that occurs on a particular matter is very important. The case log acts as a summary document of that activity so that a supervisor can quickly figure out what has occurred on a matter without having to read through the entire case file. With advances in technology, it is easy to hyperlink these case logs to actual documents that were created by students. (See Case Status and Memos for more information).
