ENCLE is organising a joint event together with the European Parliament Anti-Racism and Diversity Intergroup (ARDI). The meeting will take place at the European Parliament in Brussels on the 3rd May 2016 from 11:00 to 13:00.
The aim of the jointly organised open meeting, entitled “Clinical Legal Education in Europe: Creating a new generation of lawyers to promote equality and access to justice”, is basically to show the development of Clinical Legal Education in Europe, to demonstrate the potential of Clinical Legal Education especially in order to promote racial equality, counter racism, and educate about non-discrimination in Europe and to discuss the possibilities, on how Law Clinics can effectively participate in this process and how Europe can promote Clinical Legal Education.
Clinical Legal Education (CLE) is a rapidly growing form of legal education across much of Europe. It is widely accepted as a powerful pedagogical model which engages students and universities in the life of the community.
ENCLE is a European Network of persons committed to achieving justice through education. It aims to bring together persons from different countries, who exchange perspectives and work collaboratively from a variety of legal, educational and organizational settings in order to promote justice and increase the quality of law teaching through Clinical Legal Education (CLE).
