A "Virtual Legal Writing Conference"

On Thursday April 29, 2010, Stetson University College of Law's Project for Excellence in Legal Communication will present what it is calling a "Virtual Legal Writing Conference:   Annual Scholarship Highlights--New Voices and New Ideas in Legal Communication."  During this webinar, three legal writing faculty will discuss their scholarly projects in the area of legal communication--one empirical, one pedagogical, and one doctrinal.  Stetson invites legal writing professors   to learn more about the continued scholarly development of our discipline, to ask questions of the authors about their projects, and to share ideas about legal communication today.

Davis, Kirsten 2 The moderator will be Kirsten K. Davis (Stetson University College of Law) (pictured at left).  The speakers will be  Aida Alaka (Washburn University School of Law), discussing her recent explorations into the effectiveness of comments in improving student writing; David Cleveland (Nova Southeastern University Shepard Broad Law Center), discussing his ongling study of unpublished opinions; and Lance Long (Stetson University College of Law); discussing his empirical studies of the relationship between intensifers in briefs and effective persuasion.

Previous webinars in this series have been both informative and enjoyable, and a great reminder about how much we learn from each other in this wonderful legal writing community.  Legal writing professors can send a note to Kirsten Davis at Stetson if you haven't otherwise received an invitation to listen in.
