The Clinical Legal Education Association (CLEA) sponsors several events each year that support CLEA's mission and promotes any events relevant to clinicians.
CLEA’s conference committee reviews applications for event funding and typical grant amounts are $500.00. There is no set deadline but applications must be received prior to the event with enough time for the committee to review. Applications and additional guidelines available here.
Please note that conference as well as other events are potentially eligible for funding. Events might include clinical scholarship workshops, teaching symposia, advocacy trainings, or other forums that support CLEA's mission. Events that support or benefit only the host school will be not be considered.
Teaching Justice Webinar Series
A project of the CLEA Best Practices Committee
What is the Teaching Justice Webinar Series?
The Teaching Justice Webinar series features a number of innovative faculty who will discuss new approaches to teaching justice in the classroom. Each session will draw on the wisdom of current resistance movement and examine its intersections with criminal justice, immigration policy, racial justice, economic justice, and international human rights, among other issues.
This series will explore the theory behind experiential faculty’s decision-making processes during an intense political movement, asking the question, “How do we show up as lawyers and teachers?” Presenters also hope to develop a shared vocabulary and a deeper understanding of what it means to be a lawyer, whether we consider ourselves movement lawyers, rebellious lawyers, or transformative lawyers.
