AALS has announced this year's Workshop for Beginning Legal Writing Teachers, June 20 - 21, in Washington, D.C. You can attend just this workshop or arrive a couple of days earlier and attend the workshop geared at all new law professors, too. If you will be teaching legal writing for the first time in the fall, the workshop geared to legal writing professors is invaluable. If you will also be entering the legal academy as a professor for the first time, particularly if you will be in a tenure-line job, the earlier days will be equally helpful. Even if you will not be on the job yet in June, most law schools will pay for new professors to attend these workshops, so don't hesitate to ask.
