The International Journal of Clinical Legal Education publishes a range of articles, including: reviewed articles, practice reports, from the field, editorials and reviews. One of the ways in which we will be helping readers to navigate is by grouping papers in the following strands:
- Clinic, the University and Society: this strand addresses the role of clinic as an instrument for civic engagement, access to justice and societal change.
- Teaching and Learning in Clinic: this strand investigates the curriculum, pedagogy and assessment used to prepare students for and support students during their clinical experience.
- Research and Impact: this strand will focus on the evidence base for clinical education and will explore the weight of evidence and the knowledge claims.
We welcome submissions from practitioners from all legal and educational jurisdictions and from allied fields.
