In addition to case logs, a clinic may require that students draft memos after every substantive contact with a client or after researching any substantive issue. Like the case logs, the memos serve as a mechanism for subsequent students (or faculty supervisors) to learn what has transpired with a client in an efficient and orderly manner. It also allows students to organize their thoughts and distill lots of information down to the most important and helpful. (See Case Status and Memos for more information). Case memos can be hyperlinked to the case logs for ease of access.
