A new organization has been created to promote the exchange of ideas, information, and resources about the teaching of legal writing and effective advocacy among academics in the United States and academics in Africa.
APPEAL (Academics Promoting the Pedagogy Of Effective Advocacy In Law) grew out of the Conference on the Pedagogy on Legal Writing for Academics in Africa, which was held in Nairobi, Kenya in March 2007. The conference was attended by approximately 20 academics from the U.S. and approximately 30 academics from seven different African countries. A similar conference is tentatively scheduled for May or June 2009 in South Africa.
