This article aims to review how the elements of clinical legal education, whose origins can be traced back to other countries, have allowed the structuring in Colombia of spaces for practical and academic training of law students, and at the same time, have provided the necessary tools to meet the legal needs of disadvantaged communities in social environments that constitute the reality of the future lawyer. Based on the experience of the legal clinic of the Rosario University, which traces its origins to the year 1999, it will show how the elements of the clinical model allow students to know their reality, explore their knowledge and to help others, training them with a social responsible conscience of their profession and teaching them, from various traditional methods, to implement the knowledge acquired in their professional career. The review of clinical models will allow to assess its advantages, purposes and contributions as a pedagogic tool to contribute in this way to its consolidation in Colombia, not only from the strengthening of existing clinics, but also from the consolidation of new academic spaces of practical training.
