Inequalities in Sweden are increasing, while access to the legal system for groups exposed to human rights violations is decreasing. We need to mobilize the knowledge and energy of students through initiatives such as Clinical Legal Education (CLE). Especially since CLE has proven to be an unparalleled method to teach human rights!
In the Human Rights Clinic at the Raoul Wallenberg Institute (RWI) and the Faculty of Law at Lund university, law students assist Swedish disability rights organisations in their legal work.
During the event, we tell you what CLE is all about. Teachers present pedagogical gains from CLE, students tell how they were empowered by CLE, and disability rights organizations show how CLE has contributed to their work with human rights.
CLE has existed for a long time in other parts of the world but only recently made its way to Sweden. RWI has been part of the international development of CLE. As an inspiration for us in Sweden, RWI’s Zimbabwe office will tell us what role CLE plays in Zimbabwe.
The seminar is aimed at participants who want to know more about CLE as an educational method and a way to realise human rights, regardless of profession and sector.
