Event: 4th ENCLE Conference: “Clinical Legal Education and Access to Justice for all: from asylum seekers to excluded communities”

Start Date: October 27, 2016

End Date: October 28, 2016

Location: Valencia, Spain

Description: The European Network for Clinical Legal Education (ENCLE) will host its annual conference at the Faculty of Law, University of Valencia, Valencia (Spain). The conference aims to bring clinicians together from across Europe to discuss all aspects of teaching and learning, learn from each other and share best practices on how to improve the access to justice to, in particular, vulnerable persons, through clinical legal education.

Given the on-going influx of refugees in Europe and the fact, that more and more law clinics are focusing their work on the support to refugees and asylum seekers, ENCLE is particularly encouraging papers dealing with CLE and access to justice for refugees and asylum seekers.

The conference will include a range of sessions including workshops, paper presentations, plenaries and panel discussions. The sessions will be designed to encourage participation, stimulate discussion, share best practices and enhance the clinical movement across Europe.
