GAJE is an alliance of people committed to achieving justice through legal 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. This includes educating practicing lawyers, judges, non-governmental organizations and the public. GAJE is global, involving people from as many countries in the world as possible, avoiding domination by any single country, and especially committed to meaningful participation from less wealthy countries, institutions, and organizations.
GAJE conferences promote the exchange of information and experience among people involved in Justice Education around the world. Reduced fees and grants aim to enable participation of justice educators who are unable to find funding to attend.
Funds for reduced fees and grants are limited and every effort will be made to use these funds to realize and advance GAJE’s mission.
Deadline for applying for a Travel & Accommodation Grant is set for the: 15th September 2022.
A Waiver and Grants Committee consisting of at least two members of the GAJE Steering Committee shall be formed at least one month before the announcement each conference. This committee will apply announced criteria and will have the final say on all grant requests; however, the committee may seek the guidance of the Chair of the Steering Committee concerning the application of the announced criteria if required.
The 11th Conference offers reduced fee options for those whose institution cannot cover complete fee or unable to afford or solicit other sources of funding. Full fee waiver is not available. All applications for a travel/accommodation grant must be made online at the GAJE Conference website within the deadline set by the Conference organising committee: before 15th September 2022.
All applicants, also those who are applying for a grant, must register and pay one of the applicable conference fee option. Conference registration and fee payment can be made after the grant decision has been communicated. Note however, that grant money will not be allocated without full conference registration and a conference fee payment confirmation.
As a general rule, conference registration fees will not be waived entirely. The Waiver and Grants Committee does have the option, however, to waive the entire fee in extraordinary cases.
