Monash/ENCLE – Street Law Train the Trainer Workshop
Across the world, Clinical Legal Education has demonstrated its capacity to change traditional forms of law teaching and contribute to social justice. However, in many parts of Europe it is yet to achieve its potential as a relatively new and underdeveloped form of legal education.
This is true for all forms of clinical legal education but is especially the case for Street Law programs. In many parts of the world, Street Law has demonstrated great capacity to combine hands-on learning with essential social justice contributions to communities in need.
This Train the Trainer workshop in Prato (Italy), organized in cooperation between Monash University (as host) and the European Network for Clinical Legal Education (ENCLE), aims to motivate law teachers/clinical program coordinators to consider opening up (or to improve existing) Street Law programs and to provide them with a best practice framework for street law methodologies.
Session facilitators will be drawn from a wide range of experiences from different jurisdictions to enhance the discussion and demonstrate ideas for best practices. Participants will be able to share their own ideas and experiences whilst learning from others. The workshop is intended for law teacher, clinical teachers, supervisors and coordinators, and participants from NGOs and the legal profession, with a focus on strengthening their ability to prepare students for engagement in street law programs.
