Legal Aid Clinic @ Sites throughout Indiana’s Pro Bono District I
Jun 26 @ 3:00 pm – 5:00 pm

Legal Aid announces its “Legal Aid Clinic” program. The first “Legal Aid Clinic” will occur on Monday, April 24, 2017 at the Legal Aid Office in Bartholomew County. The “Legal Aid Clinic” takes place on the 4th Monday of each month in Bartholomew County.

Legal Aid is in the process of planning several clinics at local sites throughout Indiana’s Pro Bono District I, which includes Brown, Bartholomew, Decatur, Jackson, Jennings, Johnson, Shelby and Rush counties.

The “Legal Aid Clinic” pro bono program will utilize local volunteer attorneys, which will offer free legal consultations to low income individuals for the provision of legal advice and assistance in furtherance of equal access to justice within our community who might not otherwise be able to afford the counsel of an attorney.

Individuals coming to the “Legal Aid Clinic” can expect to receive a 10 to 15 minute consultation to answer general questions, offer legal information, or to receive other limited pro se assistance or advice in person, or a first come, first serve basis. There is no need to register in advance.

The International Journal of Clinical Legal Education Conference 2017 @ University of Northumbria
Jul 3 – Jul 5 all-day

Clinicians wear many hats: teacher, group facilitator, project manager, lawyer, researcher, mentor, activist, administrator, supervisor, academic, fund raiser, practice manager, collaborator, role model, counsellor…

This year’s conference continues our exploration of the key, often overlapping, issues arising for clinical legal education in the 21st century from the clinician’s perspective; juggling sometimes competing priorities and often making difficult choices.  Papers are invited which consider one or more of these themes  below  while still encouraging participants to locate their papers either mainly in one of those areas or by exploring the overlaps.

Themes

  • The clinician and community needs
  • The clinician and research into the impact of clinic
  • The clinician and academic identity
  • The clinician and curriculum and student learning

In particular, we would like to encourage participants to include student and other partners’ voices in their presentations, ideally through collaborative writing and presentation in person or through video calling or recordings.
