After a full morning program (with a plenary and then two sessions) it will be time to eat!
There will be a roundtable luncheon to discuss issues facing legal writing faculty of color on Tuesday, July 15, 2008 at the Legal Writing Institute Conference in Indianapolis, from 12:15 to 1:30 p.m.
Potential discussion topics include:
1. strategies for increasing diversity among faculty who teach legal writing;
2. whether potential barriers to increased diversity exist in recruitment/hiring processes;
3. retention, pay, status, and related concerns;
4. sharing ways to connect issues of race and race awareness to teaching; and
5. any other issues.
If you would like to attend or have suggestions for specific issues to discuss, contact Bill Chin from Lewis and Clark Law School or Lori Bannai at the University of Seattle School of Law.
