Tuesday evening features "New Member Dinners," starting at 5:30 p.m. This is when more experienced LWI members take new members out to dinner so that the new members can feel more personally welcomed into the legal writing community.
Interested new members should sign up at the registration desk sometime Monday or
Tuesday, to give us a rough idea of head count. (A new member is anyone with zero, one, or two years of experience teaching legal writing.)
The groups will meet at 5:30 p.m. on Tuesday evening in the Champs room of the Hyatt Regency. We will form groups mixing experienced members and new members, and the groups will disperse to various restaurants around Indianapolis. Each person pays his or her own way, and the dinner groups are expected to finish early enough that people may still attend the popcorn sessions later that evening.
There will also be several tables marked "for new members" at the Thursday luncheon session. These tables are another forum for new members to share ideas and ask questions.
