The Climate Emergency – A student conference open to students and conference delegates

IJCLE and ENCLE are holding our first ever Student pre-Conference at its annual conference in Dublin. The aim is to bring together student clinicians from around the world to help construct the next Student Law Clinic Global Day of Action.

Over 2 days, students and law clinic supervisors will meet to ask what the Climate Justice Pledge really means for students and law schools; how best (if at all) to put it into action; and what we should be seeking to do on the next day of action on Nov 17 2020.

For students only Sunday 12th July

  • Evening – pre-conference meeting.  Keynote speaker and series of discussion topics. Food and beverages not included.  Venue To Be Confirmed
