Session Abstract: The concept of justice education, in law schools and in the wider community, is an increasingly discussed topic in the context of reforms to legal education, enhancing access to justice and improving public legal literacy. Against this backdrop there has been a steady, and in places rapid, growth of law clinics in both the civil and common law worlds. This session aims to capture the nature and extent of these developments. The session will first describe the outcome of a recent survey (December 2014) that attempts to assess how justice education in one jurisdiction (the UK) is manifesting itself. Using the methodology for this research the audience will be asked to consider the applicability of such a model in an international setting. Can we usefully use this template in a global sense? How might that work, who would carry out and coordinate the research, where might the results be disseminated and what might the likely impact could be?
