Innovation and disruption: exploring the potential of clinical legal education

Presented by Professor Mary Anne Noone, La Trobe University

Legal institutions and legal practice are transforming at an unprecedented rate. It is predicted the work of lawyers will change more radically in the next two decades than over the past two centuries.

Access to justice continues to be problematic for most in the community. The legal profession’s reputation is tainted by individual lawyers’ unethical behaviour and misconduct.

How should legal educators, concerned by these issues, respond?

Drawing on Sue Campbell’s and other clinical legal educators’ legacy of innovation and disruption, Professor Mary Anne Noone will explore the potential of clinical legal education to address the varied and complex challenges facing those involved in legal education today.
