HIGHER LEGAL EDUCATION & ENVIRONMENTAL DEVELOPMENT

It looks at rethinking the law school classroom to support environmental development in all forms, ranging from adopting pro-environment legislation to supporting public interest litigation.
HIGHER LEGAL EDUCATION & ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT
This particular theme explores the inter-relationships amongst intersectional higher legal education and inclusive economic development. Therefore, discussions and outputs will focus on how future legal practitioners and legislatures can be trained to shape the law as a catalyst of sustainable economic development.
HIGHER LEGAL EDUCATION & GOOD GOVERNANCE
This theme explores the inter-relationships between intersectional higher legal education and accountable governance. Apart from looking at localizing macro concepts such as the Rule of Law and Separation of Powers, discussions and outputs under this theme will also focus on strengthening justice systems in a country through reformed higher legal education.
