CAPSLE is a national organization whose aim is to provide an open forum for the practical study of legal issues related to and affecting the education system and its stakeholders. Our members include teachers, administrators, board members, trustees, unions, school board associations, educators, academics, students, government and lawyers.
We held our 2012 national conference and annual general meeting at the start of May in Ottawa on the theme of Striving for Justice and Fairness: A Capital Experience. Our 2013 Conference, to be held May 5-7, 2013 at the Fairmont Hotel, Winnipeg, Manitoba, will focus on Law and Education: En-CAPSLE-ating Human Rights.
Aside from the annual conference and AGM, another significant initiative for CAPSLE is the CAPSLE Fellowship. The fellowship is given to one student per year enrolled in a faculty of law or a graduate school of education or related discipline at a Canadian university. Find out if you are eligible.
CAPSLE also produces a quarterly newsletter, CAPSLE Comments, which CAPSLE members receive as a benefit of membership. However, we are now publishing selected back issues online one year after their initial publication.
So, explore our website and find out more about the very effective network that CAPSLE is for educational and legal professionals alike.
