CONCEPT NOTE

The World Conference on Clinical Legal Education, Legal Aid and Human Rights 2018 is an attempt to discuss various ways in which social justice can be provided to the people around the globe through Clinical Legal Education and Legal Aid. While Human Rights is one of the most debated topic these days, Clinical Legal Education and concept of legal aid is also gathering momentum slowly specially in developing countries. Clinical Legal Education is seen as an effective tool for law teaching and social justice but the potential of this tool has not been realized completely and till date this form of legal education has underdeveloped. The problems faced by law clinics and legal aid cells are multi facet and there is a ambiguity in the approaches adopted by clinicians and tutors.

Apart from Clinical Legal Education and Legal Aid, the conference will also focus on contemporary issues and challenges in Human Rights Law both at national and international level. Today Human Rights issues has gained a significant importance and occupied a pivotal position in policy considerations at the national and international level. However, after 70 years of enactment of the Universal Declaration of Human

Rights (UDHR) world has witnessed numerous human rights violation such as refugee crises, torture, slavery, denial of transgender rights. The rights of women and children are also ignored in many different ways. All these issues have posed with various challenges and has given rise the need to discuss the effectiveness and better implementation of human rights.

This conference will serve as a platform for law clinic and legal aid cell members, teachers, professors, students, human rights activists and lawyers from all over the globe to come forward to reflect upon various issues faced by them in their approach towards access to justice. Apart from plenary sessions, this conference will also ponder upon our response towards such challenges and what approach is adopted in different countries. There will be special workshop sessions conducted by senior faculty members chosen for exceptional contribution in legal aid education to share their experience and the approach adopted by them to tackle the problems faced.
