Association of Law Teachers Conference 2022

On 11-12 April, we will be delighted to welcome delegates to one of the first on-campus Association of Law Teachers (ALT) conferences since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic.

We look forward to colleagues collaborating and sharing knowledge on teaching and learning.

The University of Manchester Law School has an award-winning Justice Hub offering students the opportunity to take part in clinical legal education while at the same time providing free legal advice to members of the community.

Learn more about the conference location, our on-campus four-star hotel the Hyatt Regency Manchester, and the city of Manchester, or view our interactive map.

  • Legal education and the UN social responsibility goals
  • Clinical legal education and experiential learning
  • Compassion pedagogy
  • Impact of higher education policy on law teaching
  • Current and future challenges facing the law curriculum
  • Students as partners in the development of the law curriculum

  • Peer learning
  • Assessment and feedback
  • Developing law students’ employability and readiness for the world of work
  • Meeting the legal education requirements of student entrepreneurs
  • Mentoring and coaching
  • Wellbeing of law students and lecturers

We will be running sessions to capture general themes, so will welcome topics which do not fall into the above categories. The default format is that each parallel session will include 3 individual papers of 20 minutes each.
