PBSC to Participate in Upcoming Clinical Education Conference in Halifax!


Dalhousie Conference photoPBSC National Director Nikki Gershbain will head to Dalhousie University this week for the 4th annual Association for Canadian Clinical Legal Education conference.  The ACCLE conference provides a forum for legal educators to share best practices, pedagogies and other information related to clinical legal education.  Gershbain will be speaking on a panel titled “Student Legal Clinics and Pro Bono Students Canada: Friends Not Foes”, which will explore the many ways PBSC collaborates and partners with clinics across the country.  Fellow panelists include Douglas Ferguson and Margaret Capes, co-directors of Western’s Community Legal Services clinic and PBSC’s On-Site Supervisors, and Maeve Byrne, a former PBSC Western student Coordinator.  The workshop presenters will review both the advantages and the challenges of these partnerships, and best practices in their work.
