Empire State legal writing conference, post 1
The first session that I attended began with a presentation by Ed ("Grumpy Ed") Tefleyan of McGeorge. Using the military experience of a "white glove inspection," illustrated with humorous video clips, he set out 10 steps to an error-free document.
Paired with Ed in Session 1 was Iselin Gambert of George Washington Law School, who talked about using the radio/TV show "This American Life" as a way to teach analysis, theme-setting, and tight editing skills. She also discussed using the show to help teach students that legal cases involve real people and their lives and are not merely academic exercises.
