What is European Network for Clinical Legal Education (ENCLE)?

ENCLE is a European Network of persons committed to achieving justice through education. It aims to bring together persons from different countries, who exchange perspectives and work collaboratively from a variety of legal, educational and organizational settings in order to promote justice and increase the quality of law teaching through Clinical Legal Education (CLE).

What is Clinical Legal Education?

Clinical legal education is a legal teaching method based on experiential learning – it is about acquiring knowledge, skills and competences through practice. Learning methods, include, but are not limited to, the practical work of students on real cases. Students typically provide assistance with research, drafting legal arguments, and meeting with clients. The work of students is supervised by academics and professionals.

This two day conference is being organised around the following themes:

  • Improving the Social Justice Mission of Clinics;
  • The Role of Clinics in Higher Education;
  • Teaching Methodology;
  • Sustainability of Clinics; and
  • Clinical Impact.

The conference will include workshops, presentations, as well as panel and plenary discussions in order to share best practice and enhance the clinical movement across Europe. Details can be found here.

The CCBE started cooperating with ENCLE in 2014. The aim is to see how Bars and Law Societies can be better linked to legal clinics in their respective countries.
