The Global Alliance of Justice Education (GAJE) is holding its 9th GAJE Worldwide Conference in Puebla and Tlaxcala (Mexico), entitled Breaking Down Walls: The Transformative Power of Justice Education”, on 5-12 December 2017.

GAJE is an ALLIANCE of persons committed to achieving JUSTICE through EDUCATION. Clinical education of law students is a key component of justice education, but GAJE also works to advance other forms of socially relevant legal education, which includes education of practicing lawyers, judges, non-governmental organizations and the lay public.  GAJE has held eight worldwide conferences leading up to this ninth conference in Mexico (1999 in India, 2001 in South Africa, 2004 in Poland, 2006 in Argentina, 2008 in the Philippines, 2011 in Spain, 2013 again in India, and 2015 in Turkey). 

The main goal of GAJE worldwide conferences is to provide law teachers, law students, legal practitioners, jurists and social activists from around the world the opportunity to acquire new ideas, models, and skills for the use of education to promote social justice.   In a range of plenary, small-group, and workshop sessions, delegates will explore Justice Education as a concept for presenting, discussing, and creating innovative ideas for promoting social justice through legal education, including new and existing university legal clinics.  There will also be organized site visits to local justice education projects and a social calendar.
