The AALS Section on Legal Writing, Reasoning and Research requests your proposals for the 2009 Section Program, which will take place at the 2009 AALS Annual Meeting, to be held January 6-10, 2009, in San Diego, California.
The Program Committee encourages programs relating to topics of broad academic interest, such as matters pertaining to plagiarism, wrongful collaboration, and adoption and enforcement of honor code issues. Other topics of interest include innovative teaching methodologies to encourage collaboration that does not run afoul of course policies. Although proposals are not limited to these topics, the committee encourages and prefers topics that will appeal to a wide audience at the AALS conference, and it will look favorably on programs that encourage interaction among panelists and that provide for significant audience participation.
Samples of past program proposals are on the Section's website. The Journal of the Association of Legal Writing Directors (JALWD) has agreed to publish the proceedings of the 2009 Program. Submit your proposal by email to Melissa Weresh no later than February 15, 2008. The program will be selected by early March 2008. If you have questions, contact any member of the Program Committee:
