"Skills-related" conference of interest - "Teaching International Law Beyond the Classroom: Engaging Students in Experiential Learning, in Webpages and Blogs, and in Historical and Empirical Research"
Here's the info (via the American Society of International Law website):
Friday, May 06 2011 / 8:30 AM
Pace University School of Law, White Plains, NY
The purpose of the conference is to raise awareness on different modalities of teaching and researching in the area of international law--to expand beyond the traditional classroom and the standard law review article. Law schools around the country have initiated international law and human rights clinics, international law faculty have increasingly used blogs and the internet to carry out their scholarly work, and the legal academy has begun to recognize the contribution that history and empirical research can make. The workshop explores each of these modalities and attempts to help the participants expand their teaching and research accordingly. The conference is being co-sponsored by the American Branch of the International Law Association.
