One international lecturer's experience with placement in the University of Newcastle Legal Centre

07 January 2014

An international perspective on the University of Newcastle Legal Centre.

Earlier this year Vietnamese lecturer Lam Ba Kanh Toan spent some time with the University of Newcastle Legal Centre as part of the establishment in Vietnam of a Clinic Legal Education (CLE) program.

CLE is new in Vietnam and therefore the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) is financially supporting selected lecturers to take up placements with BABSEA CLE's network of universities in Australia and Southeast Asia to participate in more established programs and apply their experiences to strengthen CLE programs in Vietnam.

The University of Newcastle Legal Centre (UNLC) is both a community legal service and a teaching facility for law students. The UNLC was established in 1994 as an initiative of the Newcastle Law School and provides the centrepiece for the School's Professional Program.
