The theme of the joint conference is “The Whole Lawyer 2.0” and we are pleased to release this Call for Proposals for Participation.
At our 2017 joint conference, we were collectively introduced to and initially explored the notion of “the whole lawyer”. We did so through the work of the Institute for the Advancement of the American Legal System (IAALS) in its “Foundations for Practice” study, as well through the Calls for Action of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission. Our initial explorations raised many issues, concerns and questions of ongoing significance and interest. This successive joint conference will more fully explore key topics related to “the whole lawyer” and continue critical conversations related to several key sub-themes.
ACCLE/CALT 2018 aims to involve legal educators associated with all aspects of the legal education continuum: pre-JD/LLB; law school; paralegal programs, the bar and regulators; and other professional disciplines.
Proposals will be reviewed and selected by members of the ACCLE /CALT Conference Committee based on their quality and relevance to the theme and goals of the conference.
Questions about this call for participation should be directed to David Wiseman - firstname.lastname@example.org (for CALT) or Gemma Smyth - email@example.com (for ACCLE).
PLEASE NOTE: All participants will be responsible for their own conference expenses.
Proposals should be submitted in English. All sessions will be conducted in English.We will not disseminate your information to any outside party and will use it only for ACCLE and CALT related purposes.
