LawWorks Clinics Network Conference, 6th June 2019 - Inspiring, learning and building partnerships

The inaugural LawWorks Clinics conference will bring together clinic coordinators, supervisors and volunteers from different sectors, organisations and specialisms to share good practice, exchange ideas, review the landscape and further develop the pro bono clinic community.

The conference will be of value for well-established clinics and clinic coordinators as well as those new to pro bono. There will be presentations, panel discussions and interactive workshops, with opportunities for networking and information sharing.

Keynote speaker will be Corey Stoughton, Advocacy and Acting Director of Liberty. Other speakers to be confirmed shortly.

Topics covered during the day will include:

  • managing clinic volunteers;
  • advice via remote access systems;
  • developing ‘casework clinics’;
  • the impact of SRA Handbook changes;
  • incorporating LegalTech;
  • an update on the Solicitors Qualifying Exam (SQE);
  • effective tools and resources;
  • making the most of data and client feedback;
  • policy contexts and the LASPO review.

Lunch and refreshments included.

We look forward to welcoming you on the day!
