The Best Practices for Legal Ed. blog is reporting that last Friday, deans received an email from the AALS Standing Committee on Curriculum asking about ways “ways in which law teachers are enriching their classroom teaching by bringing in background materials that go beyond the judicial opinion.”
As the BPLE blog notes:
The e-mails need not be elaborate . . .just a paragraph or two would suffice. The Committee provides examples of the kinds of information desired: “the use of transcripts, documents, briefs, published narratives about a case being studied, video materials, interviews with parties and/or lawyers, among other materials.”
The Committee will use the e-mails to collect “aggregate information” and to identify “some teachers for follow up conversations.” E-mails should be sent by May 15, 2009 to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
I am the scholarship dude.
