Community, Creativity and Culture in Legal Education

City Campus Arkwright

We are pleased to announce the Nottingham Law School Centre for Legal Education’s fifth international conference. Papers and presentations from the previous conferences can be found here and articles derived from our 2020 conference here. The conference will be held largely online, with two sessions a day on 13th – 16th June 2022 and, we anticipate, a blended online/face to face session on 17th June.

Event details

We invite participants from the whole range of legal education contexts.  This includes, for example, professional regulators and professional bodies; legal sector employers; researchers whose work has an impact on law students, law teachers or legal practitioners, librarians and information professionals; stakeholders in and users of research, psychologists, professional support lawyers; training principals and pupillage supervisors; CPD/CLE providers; academic, vocational and postgraduate course designers and teachers; research and other students; and young lawyers.  We also extend our welcome to participants from outside England and Wales.

We anticipate that sub-themes for this year’s conference will include:

  • Student experience
  • Clinic
  • Multidisciplinary legal education and outliers (eg legal education in social work, journalism, built environment, medicine)
  • Professional communities and identity
  • Supporting each other: Relationships between providers/students/regulators
  • Innovations by design or necessity
  • Acknowledging diversity in culture and community issues
