ACCLE – IJCLE 2016 Conference

With over 220 attendees from more than 50 law faculties and organisations around the world, The Risks and Rewards of Clinical Legal Education Programs, our 2016 Joint Conference with the IJCLE, was our biggest and most successful conference to date.  For those who were not able to join us, you can get a flavour of the event by viewing this Spotify story of the conference.  Many of our presenters have generously made their presentation materials available to share.  On the last day of the conference, before saying goodbye to our guests and colleagues, we gathered everyone for this wonderful group photo in the Atrium of the beautiful new Jackman Law Building at the Faculty of Law.
