Empire State Legal Writing Conference -- call for proposals

Images  The First Annual Empire State Legal Writing Conference will be held at Hofstra University School of Law on May 14, 2010.  The planning committee invites proposals for presentations at this conference on a broad range of topics relevant to those teaching legal writing and research.  While proposals from those who have previously presented at legal writing conferences are welcome, this conference also  seeks proposals from those who have not presented before.  Feel free to contact any of the planning committee members for help developing a proposal or to see sample proposals. Proposals should be limited to one page, single-spaced, and should include:


1. title of proposed presentation;
2. brief description of proposed presentation and the teaching method for the presentation (lecture, simulation, small group exercises, etc.);

3. a two-sentence summary for the program brochure;
4. time needed for presentation -- 25 minutes or 50 minutes;
5. technology needed;
6. contact information

7. Also state whether you have previously presented at any national or regional legal writing conferences.

The deadline for submissions is December 20, 2009.  Please e-mail proposals, as a Word document attachment, to:
