Call for Papers

This year’s conference is a practical, hands-on event providing a springboard to explore and develop effective practices and enhance the scholarship of clinical legal education

To achieve this springboard, Day Two will be dedicated to the following streams:

  • Supervision of students and client cases
  • What are we assessing and giving feedback on?
  • Preparation for clinic: readiness and supporting students
  • An open section organised into crowd-sourced themes

Each stream will be introduced by a convenor, followed by papers from delegates and finishing with a plenary. Delegates will participate throughout the stream.

On Day Three, the following themes will be explored through 3x20 minute paper sessions:

  • New Technologies
  • Ethics and Values
  • New Clinics
  • Other developments in Clinical Education

Keynote Presentations:

Changing Clinic: Evolution or Revolution?
