The Department of Law launched its clinical legal education programme on 20th June, and its work and activities will continue until September. Clinical legal education has been an integral part of legal education in law schools in countries such as Australia, India, South Africa, the UK, and the US, for many years. The programme is new to the Seychelles. The aims of the programme are to expand the breadth of legal education for UniSey law students by exposing them to real-life projects and assignments in diverse areas of law; to conduct cutting-edge legal research in domestic and international law; and to facilitate domestic law reform and capacity-building.
