Call for IJCLE/ENCLE student provocateurs

Call for IJCLE/ENCLE student provocateurs

  • Are you a creative legal thinker?
  • Can you defend a controversial argument?
  • Would you like to meet and debate with some of the world’s best-known student law clinic supervisors?

If so then you could be the person we are looking for.

On July 12 and 13, the European Network for Clinical Legal Education and International Journal of Clinical Legal Education is holding its first ever Student pre-Conference at our 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 to put it into action and what we should be seeking to do on the next day of action on Nov 17 2020.

To help challenge delegates, we are looking for 5 students to act as Student Provocateurs. As a Student Provocateur, your job will be to take a challenging position on the items to be discussed, to produce a short video setting out your position in advance of the conference, and to engage delegates in and out of conference sessions in debate around your idea. During the conference you will be given a “ Student Provocateur” t-shirt to help delegates identify you.

For example, you might argue that businesses are the true environmentalists of the world; or that technology will save us; or that global rationing of travel and resources is the only way to survive. Whatever the stance you take it must be one you are prepared to passionately defend.

To apply:

  • Use your phone to film and email a short (no more than 2 minutes) video (along with email contact details) to
  •  This should state who you are; which Student Law Clinic you participate in, and what position you would like to take.

Application closing date: no later than midnight GMT (UK time) 6th March 2020

Successful applicants will be notified by email by the 31st March 2020 and will have conference fees waived.
