The International Journal of Clinical Legal Education (IJCLE), published by Northumbria University and the Association for Canadian Clinical Legal Education (ACCLE), are delighted to invite you to our joint 2016 conference, The Risks and Rewards of Clinical Legal Education Programs. The conference will be held at the University of Toronto, Faculty of Law, from July 10 - 12, 2016.
The conference theme encourages participants to reflect on the balance between the risks and rewards of clinical legal education programs for the various stakeholders: students, clients, communities, supervisors, law faculties and the broader University.
NEW! Full conference program is now available!
The joint IJCLE / ACCLE Conference will run for 2.5 days. Registration opens at 10:30 on Sunday, July 10. A welcome lunch will be served from 12:00 – 1:00 pm, followed by our opening Keynote address. The conference program will conclude at 6:00 pm on July 12, 2016, followed by a closing reception.
Conference registration fees include lunch on all three days and breakfast on the two full days, July 11 and 12. Also included is a ticket to the post-conference reception.

Optional Conference Events:
Note: you must select each additional event you want to attend on the registration menu when completing your registration and making a payment.
There are two optional conference dinners available for an additional cost. On the evening of July 10, 2016, all participants are invited to join us for a casual barbeque dinner on the back lawn of the law school. The formal Conference Dinner will be held at Hart House, University of Toronto, on July 11, 2016.
For attendees who are able to stay on after the conference, a full-day outing to the majestic Niagara Falls – one of the world’s most impressive natural wonders - is planned for July 13, 2016.
Further details about these events can be found on the registration page.
Unfortunately, due to our own limited resources, the IJCLE and ACCLE are not able to offer any travel subsidies to assist participants in attending. We do have a very limited number of conference fee waivers available to presenters. If you wish to request a waiver, please send us your written request by February 29, 2016 at email@example.com.
