Professor Ruth Anne Robbins, from Rutgers-Camden, sends the following report:
"Last Friday many of us attended the Legal Rhetoric conference at American’s Washington School of Law. It was a phenomenal conference.
"James Boyd White was the keynote speaker, an amazing opportunity for us to hear one of law’s great scholars. After he spoke we were able to hear the thoughts and new scholarship happening in three different areas of legal writing/clinical doctrine: narrative, metaphor and archetypes.
"Terry Phelps is truly a conference visionary. The professors in that Legal Rhetoric department obviously put in a lot of work and showed enormous dedication to the project and the field.
"Thank you so much to everyone at American – I for one was energized by the quality of the presentations and material."
