Mercer University School of Law will sponsor a Law & Rhetoric Workshop, Legal Writing Through a Rhetorical Lens, on Tuesday, January 6, 2009, at the Hilton San Diego, Gaslamp Quarter. The workshop will take place immediately before the start of the AALS Annual Meeting and at a hotel right across the street from the conference hotel.
The workshop is designed to bring together a group of people with common interests in legal rhetoric for a day of conversation that will generate new ideas and strengthen existing connections between rhetorical theory and legal writing scholarship, teaching, and practice. Steven J. Mailloux, Chancellor's Professor of Rhetoric at the University of California-Irvine, will begin the discussion; the other confirmed speakers so far are listed on the attached announcement.
Registration is free, but the workshop will be limited to the first 35 registrants. You may visit the workshop webpage for more details and to register. Mercer gratefully acknowledges support from the Legal Writing Institute for this workshop. To download a brochure describing the workshop, click here: Download mercerlawrhetoricworkshop1.06.09.pdf
