This course  involves students (and supervising academic staff) partnering with Bridges Across Borders South East Asia Community Legal Education (BABSEA CLE) teaching Myanmar law teachers and students  about Community Legal Education (teaching will occur in English).

Students will be teaching concepts such as  access to justice, pro bono, professional ethics and generally developing the capacity to design, teach and deliver community legal education.  

The course aims to
 - give students a clinical experience in a developing country, so as to see first hand the legal and social justice issues arising in a country transitioning to democracy
 - guide and support students in identifying, developing and applying practical legal skills in community legal education.
 - develop students' critical understanding of the role of lawyers in providing access to justice in a developing country.
 - contextualise the study of law and student learning in the wide range of other law courses.
 - encourage, promote and validate student aspirations to promote access to justice and equality before the law specifically in relation to disadvantaged people and communities.
 - encourage students to critically consider the effect of the law and its ability to deliver and or facilitate justice in a developing country transitioning to democracy.
