The National Critical Lawyers Group in the UK will hold its next conference, called "Human Rights and Human Wrongs," from Feb. 24-25, 2007, at the University of Kent in Canterbury. (Its last was in 2004, on Justice.) The CLG organization "brings together academics, practitioners, politicians and students in an explosive forum which is designed to extend the critical teaching that is fostered at Kent and remains the main alternative to 'Black Letter' legal education."
Updated information on the 2007 conference is linked here. Entrance is very affordable. In addition to broader topics of critical studies, reproductive rights, and human rights, the scheduled topics and speakers include (particularly as to this blog's theme):
Critical Legal Ethics: Kim Economides, Peter Fitzpatrick, and Emilios Christodoulidis
Law Society and Bar Reform: Richard de Friend and Khawar Qureshi
Law & Medical Ethics: Barbara Hewson, Kenny Veitch, and Mary Ford
Law Clinics: Catherine Carpenter and John Fitzpatrick, plus law students at Strathclyde and Northumbria
