AALS Section Program

If you're heading to the Association of American Law Schools (AALS) annual meeting in Washington, D.C., don't forget tomorrow morning, Thursday, January 5th, at 10:30 a.m., the Section on Legal Writing, Reasoning, & Research presents its program.  The topic is Teaching Professionalism in a Way That Respects and Honors Law Students.  An official announcement states:  "In response to consistent complaints about incivility in the legal profession, the program's speakers will share their perspectives on how to teach and assess professionalism.... This program will provide ideas, exercises, strategies, resources, and food for thought for all law professors interested in teaching professionalism."  Of course professionalism topics come up frequently in the legal writing classroom, as the expectations and ethics of the profession, courts, clients, and general public have a direct impact on a lawyer's writing, and so this program promises to be very helpful.  (spl)
