Legal Research, Legal Writing, and Moot Court: Pink Ink and Beyond

Some of the most interesting cases for legal writing assignments and moot court competitions involve issues of sexual orientation and gender identity.  Many professors may be reluctant to use these issues in appellate brief or legal memorandum assignments.  A session at the Annual Meeting of the Association of American Law Schools annual meeting in San Diegot will discuss guidelines for using sexual orientation and gender identity issues in legal writing problems, and examine specific topics (such as criminal and civil actions for hate crimes) that have made for particularly effective legal writing assignments.  The session will also provide information on the sexual orientation moot court competition, and on using past problems from that competition as the basis for future moot court problems and legal writing assignments. 

Speakers/presenters on the panel include:

James G. Durham, Touro College, Jacob D. Fuchsberg Law Center

Greg Johnson, Vermont Law School

Lyonette Louis-Jacques, The University of Chicago Law School

Anthony S. Niedwiecki, Nova Southeastern University, Shepard Broad Law Center

Robert Bradley Sears, Executive Director, The Charles R. Williams Institute on
Sexual Orientation Law and Public Policy
, Los Angeles, California 

Robert Volk, Boston University School of Law

Nancy A. Wanderer, University of Maine School of Law
