Scottish University Law Clinic Network 2016

The 2016 summer workshop of the network of Scottish student law clinics, summarised in tweets.


  1. This was the fifth Scottish University Law Clinic Network (SULCN) summer event, hosted at Glasgow Caledonian University on 8 June 2016.
  2. There were two workshops to choose from, namely:
  3. Workshop A – Professor Donald Nicholson OBE of the University of Strathclyde facilitated a discussion about the choices and variables faced by clinics to maximise community impact. This was based on his yet to be published paper, '"Our Roots Began in (South) Africa": Modelling Law Clinics to Maximise Social Justice Ends'.
  4. Workshop B – Rob Marrs, Senior Policy and Development Manager at the Law Society of Scotland, hosted a workshop on Street Law. This is a concept used worldwide and it utilises highly-participatory, law-focused lessons to educate people about their rights and the legal process.
  5. There was then a plenary session, hosted by me. Over to Twitter to digest these various aspects.

  8. [Street Law was the focus of SULCN 2013, which I blogged and Storified about.]
