ACCLE 2015 Full Conference Program – PDF ACCLE – 6th Annual Conference: The Place of Clinical Legal Education

University of Saskatchewan College of Law, Saskatoon, Saskatchewan October 23-24, 2015

The Association of Canadian Clinical Legal Education (ACCLE) is pleased to host its 6th Annual Conference at the College of Law, University of Saskatchewan from October 23-24, 2015. This year’s conference will focus on “The Place of Clinical Legal Education”. Through a mix of plenary and break-out sessions, we will explore this theme of “place” by considering questions such as:
•How do clinics “locate” themselves within the communities and places where they exist?
•How does clinical legal education respond to the forces that have displaced communities both historically and currently?
•How should clinic lawyers and students think about our place as advocates for marginalized members of communities and our place within the larger legal community?
•As legal education as a whole faces a shifting landscape, where is clinical legal education located now and in the future?

In addition to presentations that speak to the issue of “place”, the program will also include a number of sessions that explore core themes in Canadian clinical legal education, including: innovative pedagogies and new and “traditional” models of clinical legal education.

Are you interested in writing and publishing? Join us for our Second Annual Pre-Conference Writing Workshop on Thursday, October 22, 2015, from 4 – 7 pm. This workshop is designed to bring together those who may have a piece of writing well underway, one or more formulated ideas for a paper, or simply an idea that has been percolating.

The Workshop will be facilitated by Janet Mosher, Associate Professor, Osgoode Hall Law School. Janet has a long-standing involvement in clinical legal education, having served as Academic Director of the Intensive Program in Poverty Law at Parkdale Community Legal Services and as Osgoode’s Director of Clinical Legal Education. Her research, writing and activism (which she likes to think of as inter-connected) have focused on access to justice, poverty law and violence against women.
