Suffolk hosts one-day legal writing workshop

On Friday, December 1, Suffolk University School of Law hosted the Northeast Consortium of Legal Writing Teachers.  The topic--using conferences to take student drafts to the next level--produced lively discussion in the small groups.  Some of the pointers included having students be responsible for the agenda of the conference and giving them guidelines for how to do so; using rubrics and commenting sheets to complement the conferencing process; using conference time to explore process as well as product; assigning a narrow task on a returned draft for the student to rewrite and bring to the conference; and how to reach students who do not seem to be motivated.

Thanks to all who participated, and a special thanks to Ann McGonigle Santos, who organized the workshop.
