Legal Writing Workshop in Philadelphia in June 2014

This free one-day workshop will explore how legal writing faculty can collaborate with clinics, non-profits, and pro bono projects to expand experiential learning opportunities for students by bringing social justice practice experience into legal writing teaching. 

Many legal writing faculty expand skills training by creating partnerships with public interest organizations, clinics, pro bono programs, and externships. The workshop will be a forum for discussion of specific collaborations that workshop participants have undertaken or hope to launch. The projects can be full-blown courses, short-term collaborations on discrete projects, incremental collaborations among faculty, or ideas for future partnerships. They can take place within the required legal writing curriculum, in upper-division courses, or in conjunction with pro bono, externship, or clinical programs.

The workshop will provide a platform for sharing ideas and continuing to develop a community around enriching students’ educational experiences through public interest collaborations that offer opportunities for experiential learning.

Virginia Conference on Reparations

From Alfred Brophy, The Faculty Lounge:

This Friday the University of Virginia's Carter Woodson Institute is hosting a symposium on the question, "Does Reparations Have a Future?"  I suppose the short answer is that people are continuing to use reparations talk as a way of organizing their thoughts and actions around racial justice -- even as the case for reparations has been largely defeated in the courts and in legislatures.

Full post.

Great Conference Sponsored By St. John's LS at Cambridge Univ, July 20-22, 2011

If you are free between July 20 and July 22, 2011, St. John's University School of Law is hosting a wonderful conference: Worlds of Work: Employment Dispute Resolution Systems Across The Globe Fitzwilliam College, Cambridge University, July 20-22, 2011. There is still time to register and to submit papers for publication consideration in the law review. 

A copy of the agenda is available by clicking  Download CAMBRIDGE Conference Agenda -6-14-2011 Registration has been extended and you can register by clicking here

I am a member of the Board of St. John's Law School Center for labor and employment law and though I am admittedly biased, I can tell you that I have gone to virtually every one of their conferences in the last 7 years and each one is better than the other. 

The list of speakers include at least two former members of the NLRB, several arbitrators, the Director of the FMCS, several partners from major law firms and several well known labor law professors. 

What is so wonderful about conferences sponsored by the Center of Labor and Employment Law, and this conference in particular, is that it brings together academics with practicing lawyers. The conference is not about theory; rather it is about real life issues facing labor and employment lawyers today. 

Though I will not be able to join you at this conference (I was going to present a paper) due to a personal family emergency, I do hope that you would consider this conference if you have some time.

As an added bonus, registration includes 3 nights in the dorms at Cambridge University. Imagine that.

Important Conference On Status of Unpaid Interns. Oct. 12, 2010 GW Law School

On Tuesday Oct. 12, 2010 GW Law School is hosting an important conference on the status of unpaid student interns. The program can be downloaded by clicking Download Regulating Unpaid Internships

The conference will feature several important speakers, including two that I count as friends, David Gregory from St. John's Law School and Samuel Estreicher from NYU School of Law School. Significantly, this is not just an academic conference where legal theory will be presented. Several practing attorneys are speaking and the materials are both recent and practical.

The use and abuse of interns is not a new problem or a new legal issue. However, with the poor economy, more and more students, lawyers and others are working without charge with the hope of landing a job.

This conference should not be missed. I would have posted this earlier, but I just found out about it.
