The STARS project: Skills Transfers In Academia: A Renewed Strategy Enhancing Legal Clinics in the European Union
In the past, students who worked for the SLAO for a long time had the opportunity to take part in the STARS program, in the framework of which a summer school in Luxembourg (Université du Luxembourg) and a winter school in Rome (Università degli Studi Roma Tre) were organized. These meetings were dedicated to sharing experience in clinical legal education and they were attended by students from five world universities - Université du Luxembourg, Università degli Studi Roma Tre, Università degli Studi di Brescia, Romanian-American University Bucharest and Palacký University in Olomouc. During the meetings, groups of students created across the universities addressed the assigned cases and then presented their solutions to other participants.

12th International Journal of Clinical Legal Education - Clinics without borders
15 – 17 July 2014
The conference serves as a unique forum in which clinical educators from many jurisdictions come together to discuss all aspects of clinical teaching and learning, to learn from one another and to share best practice. The conference brought together academics, lawyers, students and social activists with an exciting mix of keynote speeches, panel discussions, formal presentations and interactive workshop sessions. There were lots of opportunities for participation, collaboration and dialogue. The European Network for Clinical Legal Education (ENCLE) which shielded the conference is a European-wide association established in 2013 with the main goal to promote clinical legal education in Europe. In order to achieve this goal, ENCLE supports exchange of information and networking, organises conferences, workshops and training sessions, raises funds to further promote clinics and communicates and cooperates with other entities in order to support the idea of clinical legal education in Europe. The significance of this latest development in the area of clinical legal education in Europe will be reflected in a special European stream within the conference.
