Streetlaw Best Practice Conference, 7-8 September 2016

August 1st, 2016 § 0 comments

Streetlaw is the term often used to describe university public legal education programmes.

Many universities in the UK and Ireland send law students into schools, community groups and other organisations to educate people on their legal rights and responsibilities. Streetlaw utilises an interactive methodology which encourages participants to actively engage and to understand how the law relates to them.

Inspired by the first International Street Law Best Practices Conference, held in South Africa earlier this year, Birmingham Law School will host the first regional UK and Ireland event. It will take place at Birmingham Law School, University of Birmingham, Edgbaston, Birmingham B15 2TT. During this interactive two day conference, participants will share Streetlaw best practice from across the globe. The conference will cover:

  • Different models for community engagement through Streetlaw;
  • Sample Streetlaw best practice sessions;
  • How to design your own Streetlaw sessions;
  • Tips and ideas for developing your Streetlaw programme; and
  • Incorporating Streetlaw into the curriculum.

If you have a best practice session that you would like to share at the conference, please email Linden Thomas l.thomas@bham.ac.uk with the details.
