Call for Abstracts
The Call for Abstracts is now closed
The Conference programming group makes the final decision regarding the Conference program, taking into account a number of factors. Due to the large number of abstracts submitted, we may not be able to accommodate all proposals. We do however appreciate the effort and interest shown. The programming process is resource intensive and unfortunately we are not able to provide feedback on reasons for program decisions.
The 2016 National CLCs Conference will showcase the innovative and collaborative work of the CLC sector. It will provide opportunities for the sector to share and learn from each other, from partner organisations and communities, and from other experts in the legal assistance field. It will demonstrate and celebrate the fundamental role played by CLCs in driving better justice outcomes within our communities and society as a whole.
Advice as to programming decisions will be sent by email, to submitters, by early June 2016 at the latest. The successful applicants will also be sent further information on what is required.
Finally, please note that only abstracts submitted via this online process will be considered.
How to submit
This online form includes two text boxes to be completed
- Abstract – up to 80 words (560 characters including spaces). This is the text that will appear in the Conference program, so please write this with the Conference audience in mind, and remember they are not all lawyers, and not all Community Legal Centre workers. It also helps peoples attendance choices if it is clear and interesting.
- Supporting Information – up to 100 words (730 characters including spaces). This information assists the Conference programming group when considering and assessing proposals. It will not appear in the program.
This call for abstracts closed at COB 14 April 2016
Having your paper accepted does not confer free Conference registration – you will still need to register and pay.
