ROMA TRE SMALL SAVERS PROTECTION LEGAL CLINIC

Innovative approaches for addressing target groups, by providing for example: more attractive education and training programmes

The Small Savers Protection Legal Clinic (SSPLC) provides students with a qualified legal education on the legal framework about consumers and small savers protection in the banking and financial sector, especially as regards the enforcement of their rights and the filing of claims before the "Arbitro Bancario e Finanziario" (ABF - for banking issues) and the “Arbitro delle Controversie Finanziarie” (ACF – for financial issues); builds a network cooperation between academics and professionals; promotes knowledge of alternative methods of dispute resolution within the academic community and amongst.

The SSPLC uses participatory approaches and ICT-based methodologies: in particular, students will use a more strategic and integrated use of ICTs and open educational resources (OER) that will allow them to get familiar with ICT based methodologies.

In fact:

-all the relevant documents (the case folder, the legislative and judicial materials) are available on line, in the private section of the Faculty website, in the electronic format (none of the documents will be in paper format), since, given the transversality of the subject, there is not a dedicated handbook for this topics;

– thanks to the drafting of the claim, students will: (i) learn to use legal databases, which they were not previously familiar with (two lessons are entirely dedicated to teach students how to conduct a computer-assisted legal research); (ii) prepare written advice (iii) work in the class only with laptops (theirs or the ones provided by the Faculty), as they will learn to share document in clouds, use just one draft shared by the all class, mark it up and  and make it circulate by email;

-the entire ABF/ACF procedure is online, so that students will face with online dispute resolution (ODR)

The SSPLC allows the students to improve processes of recognition and validation of competences, having regard to the greater effectiveness of activities for the disadvantaged groups and the differences in learning outcomes linked to the socio-economic disparities.

The preference in the selection of the cases goes to the ones of particular relevance, even from the social standpoint, having special regard to the structurally vulnerable subjects, to weak, illiterate and poor consumers (as for the subjective element); and to those who had requested loans for house purchase purposes (as for the objective element, protection the right to an adequate house), or had invested their own life savings. These features of the LC and the possibility for the students to attend the meetings with clients, interview them and listen to their stories, led the student to better understand and improve their responsiveness to social and cultural diversity.

The cases dealt with by the clinic are not conceived in-house, but they are filed by consumers' associations which have a connection with the Faculty and the course teacher, which also promotes the cooperation with partners from other socio-economic sectors.

GAJE-IJCLE-ACCLE - Worldwide Online Conference (Hosted by Northumbria University) - 16 - 18 June 2021: "Turning Challenges into Opportunities: Justice Education in Times of Crises"

We face unprecedented multiple challenges, the most prominent being linked to the ongoing health crisis. The pandemic has changed our day to day lives, breaking down routines and well-established paradigms. It has forced educators and students around the world to rapidly transition from in-person instruction to distance learning, with little time to prepare for this shift. In the midst of this health crisis we face other severe crises linked to climate change and to economic, social and political instabilities everywhere. The recent past has been characterised by environmental disorder, conflict, displacement, growing economic insecurity and austerity. Increasing social polarisation has meant that contemporary societies are becoming more unequal. These crises threaten to overturn well-established theoretical frameworks, approaches and categories, which also deeply affects education and the production of knowledge. This upheaval both challenges us and presents opportunities for rethinking approaches to education. Clinical Legal Education and more generally Justice Education, has always demonstrated its potential to confront crucial practical legal problems societies face and to find innovative responses to them. Many of these legal education programs have enhanced social justice worldwide in many different ways, both directly and through the emphasis on socially relevant legal education. This conference, organised in partnership between the Global Alliance for Justice Education, the International Journal of Clinical Legal Education and the Association for Canadian Clinical Legal Education, will provide a platform to discuss the current challenges, the extent to which they can be turned into opportunities and practical ways forward. It offers an important forum for connecting with and being inspired by a broad diversity of legal justice educators from all over the world. It provides a unique platform for sharing innovative approaches and research on educational methods promoting students’ engagement, diversity and social justice.
