Organizers of the Applied Storytelling Conference have announced plans for the second biennial gathering of this group, to be held at Lewis & Clark Law School in Portland, Oregon, on July 22-24, 2009.
The first conference, whose proceedings and papers are chronicled in two recent publications, volume 43 of The Law Teacher (Thomson 2007) and volume 14 of the LWI Journal, took place in London in 2007. The second conference is designed to bring together lawyers, judges, and professors "to explore the role of narrative in legal practice and curricular strategies that will prepare students to use story and narrative as they enter the practice of law."
Interested persons are invited to propose presentations on the role of narrative in the practice of law. The conference flyer contains suggested topics, but also asks applicant to "be creative." The conference will feature 45-60 minute presentations as well as roundtable discussions.
