Successful collaborating: side meetings

PILG 2011 provided participants with an opportunity to share ideas and coordinate efforts. For instance, a well participated side meeting was held by Lawyers for Human Rights that resulted in much discussion. Documents relevant to that discussion have just been uploaded on the blog, and can be viewed here. In discussions on reforming legal education, a decision was made to create a sister site to share ideas and experiences of the attendees. That blog has now been set up and those interested can participate and provide their own case studies or resources for inclusion to the administrator.
