Conference on Clinical Legal Education

Clinical Conference Accepting Proposals Through September 25


The Planning Committee for the 2019 AALS Conference on Clinical Legal Education invites proposals for sessions, workshops, and poster presentations at the upcoming 2019 conference.

How do we build the next generation of lawyer leaders when our students have grown up in an era of strong division, attacks on institutions of government, and the frequent rejection of civil discourse? This year’s conference will focus on the unique challenges law students face as future lawyers and leaders in a highly polarized world.

Today, we and our students are confronted with threats to virtually every norm in the legal and political world –the environment we live in, a free press, election integrity, judicial independence, standards of respectful debate, facts, and the rule of law. Our students appear energized and anxious to take this on, but what new tools and opportunities should clinical legal education be providing? What improvements can we make to current teaching techniques? As legal educators, we must equip our students with creativity, judgement, and a toolbox of knowledge, skills, and values that will enable the coming generation to meet these unprecedented challenges.

Proposals may be made in the following categories:


All proposals are due Tuesday, September 25, 2018, no later than 11:59 p.m., Eastern. Submissions must be made online.
