Courtesy of Professor Karin Mika (Cleveland Marshall), we have a small selection of photos to share with you from the Rocky Mountain Legal Writing Conference. The photos here are in no particular order. You can click on any of the photos to enlarge them (even if the picture doesn't fully load on your screen, you should still be able to click on the photo and see it.)
Pictured here first (on the left) is Judy Stinson (Arizona State University) who spoke on The Tao of Legal Writing. Judy is also the president of the Association of Legal Writing Directors.
Linda Edwards (William S. Boyd School of Law at the University of Nevada at Las Vegas) (pictured sitting and showing us her wonderful trademarked smile) was the plenary speaker at the conference, speaking on the subject of "Metaphor, Archetype, and Story in Law's Development." So . . . how many of the legal writing professors in the background of Linda's photo do YOU recognize?
Regional legal writing conferences have become a big deal in recent years, and I'm happy about that. It gives many professors a chance to attend and rejuvinate during a semester. These conferences all supplement the never-to-be-missed conferences of the Legal Writing Institute (the next one will be June 27-30, 2010 in Marco Island (be SURE to save those dates)
