Abstract

Drawing upon empirical research, this paper pursues two interconnected lines of inquiry. First, it examines the regional impact of turbulent and extraordinary times upon both vulnerable individuals within the family justice arena, and those organisations supporting associated legal needs within the voluntary advice sector. Secondly, the paper explores the role of activism in curricular, co-curricular and extra-curricular clinical legal education from the perspective of key stakeholders including students, institutional providers, charity and commercial supporters and clients. The central aims of this research are (1) to identify key opportunities to refocus future and ordinary times thinking about the mission and models for clinical legal education; and (2) to establish legitimate boundaries for social justice activism within legal education more generally.
