Risk _reward _clinicThe Risks and Rewards of Clinic
University of Toronto, 10th- 12th July 2016

Our over-arching theme encourages participants to reflect on the balance between risk and reward for all the stakeholders in clinic.  In particular, we would like to encourage participants to include student and other partners’ voices in their presentations, ideally through collaborative writing and presentation in person or through video calling or recordings.

Taking part

Presentations at IJCLE/ACCLE can take one of three formats, each with its own structured proposal application form:

  • Paper presentation
    These will be in traditional conference paper format, with a twenty minute presentation followed by questions.  
  • Interactive seminar
    These sessions will be 90 minutes long, will involve active participation from the audience as well as input from the presenters and will be designed to generate discussion and new learning for the participants and the convenors. 
  • Symposium
    These 90 minute sessions will consist of collaborative presentations around a common theme from at least three institutions and input from an independent discussant
