JOIN THE CLIMATE JUSTICE PLEDGE

Universities from Germany, USA, Czech Republic, Catalonia, UK and Nigeria all signed the Climate Justice Pledge and committed to action in air pollution on Nov 18 2019.

Join us!! We need as many student law clinics as possible!!

Possible actions: It could be that you invite members of other faculties in your university to come in and explain the science or economics of air pollution to your students; it could be that your students carry out Streetlaw activities in their local communities to explain people's legal rights to clean air; or it may be that you have a letter writing day asking local and national corporations to explain the steps they are taking to prevent air pollution. It is entirely up to you and your students to decide what you do. Our principle is to think globally but act locally.

European Best Practice Standards Workshop

Right before the upcoming ENCLE/IJCLE conference in Bratislava, ENCLE organised on the 3rd July a workshop on "European Best Practice Standards – International and European Perspectives”. This workshop was the follow-up of the ENCLE Standards Workshop which took place in Valencia (January 2019, please see here the report of the meeting), where a number of European clinicians started the discussion on common set of European CLE standards. 

The purpose was to discuss the outcomes of Valencia workshop and proposed further steps.

In this context, it is worth to mention as example the draft standards document, that has been produced in the framework of the project "Skills Transfers In Academia: A Renewed Strategy" (acronym STARS, see http://www.lawstars.eu) and which has been also influenced by the discussions in Valencia. Please see the draft standards here

In addition, please see the summary (click here) of the CLE Standards plenary session, which was hold at the 6th ENCLE Conference in Turin in September 2018.
