The Association for Canadian Clinical Legal Education (ACCLE) and the Canadian Association of Law Teachers (CALT) are pleased to invite you to our 2018 joint conference. “The Whole Lawyer 2.0” will take place at the Faculty of Law, Queen’s University (Kingston, Ontario), from Thursday 31 May to Saturday 2 June 2018.

Conference Theme:

At our first joint conference in 2017, we were introduced to the notion of “the whole lawyer” through the work of the Institute for the Advancement of the American Legal System (IAALS) in its “Foundations for Practice” study, as well through the Calls for Action of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission. Our initial explorations raised many issues, concerns and questions of ongoing significance and interest. We felt, and participants agreed in the conference evaluations, that there was much more to be said on these important questions.

We hope the “The Whole Lawyer 2.0” will provide an opportunity to more fully explore key topics related to “the whole lawyer” and continue critical conversations related to several key sub-themes including but not limited to technology, the question of competencies, professional identity development and the character quotient, ongoing responses to the TRC’s Calls for Action and what it might mean to “lawyer for reconciliation”.

More information about the conferecne theme and proposed key topics can be found in our Call for Proposals.

Conference Schedule:

The joint ACCLE / CALT Conference will run for 2.5 days. Registration opens at 8:30 am on Thursday, May 31. The conference program will conclude at 1:00 pm on June 2, 2018.

Conference registration fees include breakfast on all three days and lunch on the two full days, May 31 & June 1. There are also options to add ACCLE or CALT memberships to your registration. Register early! Early bird pricing ends on April 30, 2018.

All registrants and guests are invited to join us for the conference dinner on May 31, 2018. The dinner will be held in the ballroom at Kingston’s Four Points Sheraton hotel, located steps away from Kingston's beautiful downtown waterfront. Guests will enjoy an abundant buffet dinner with numerous salads, fresh seasonal vegetables and main course options followed by fresh fruit and a selection of desserts. A cash bar will be available.
