Delta Hotels Fredericton

Fredericton, New Brunswick



We invite presentation submissions for inclusion in the program of the 2023 CAPSLE conference in Fredericton, New Brunswick, from April 30 to May 2, 2023. This annual conference attracts experienced educators, administrators, lawyers, academics, and others interested the relationship between education and law, and more specifically the practical application of the law in the education context.

Everyone in education¾teachers, administrators, students, parents, trustees, government officials¾is facing unrelenting and unpreceded changes in education: COVID, immigration, recruitment, technology, and the list goes on. Riding the tides of change, are we treading water? Are we sinking or swimming? How are we dealing with the emerging issues in education? To what extent does the law support us in our work? We are excited to get back together in Fredericton for the 2023 CAPSLE conference to learn, to share, to support, and to gain fresh perspectives in these complex times.
