The AALS is offering two trainings that may be of interest this summer: Workshop for Beginning Legal Writing Teachers and Workshop for New Law Teachers. Both conferences are geared to those who have been teaching for less than two years. The conferences will be held on June 23-26, 2005, in Washington D.C.
The Workshop for Beginning Legal Writing Teachers, which will be held from June 25-June 26, "should be of interest ...to all new teachers whose responsibilities include some teaching of legal writing," according to information posted by the AALS.
"The workshop will address the basic tasks of the teacher of legal writing: designing problems, classroom teaching, critiquing written work by students, and conducting effective legal writing conferences with students."
The Workshop for New Law Teachers, June 23-June 25, "is designed to offer new law teachers ideas about teaching techniques and scholarly development and to enable them to share excitement, experiences and concerns about entering the academic world." (els)
