Dozens of legal writing professors met today at the Legal Writing Institute one-day workshops across the country. We've exchanged a great deal of useful information and teaching tips on legal writing textbooks, new legal research tools, effective student conferences, and other topics. The workshops were held today at the following 13 locations:
- American University School of Law, Washington D.C.
- California Western School of Law, San Diego, California
- Emory Law School, Atlanta, Georgia
- Pepperdine University School of Law, Malibu, California
- Santa Clara University School of Law, Santa Clara, California
- St. John’s University School of Law, Manhattan Campus, New York City
- Stetson University College of Law, Tampa Campus, Tampa, Florida
- Suffolk Law School, Boston, Massachusetts

- University of Dayton School of Law, Dayton, Ohio
- University of Tulsa College of Law, Tulsa, Oklahoma
- Wake Forest School of Law, Winston-Salem, North Carolina
- Widener University School of Law, Wilmington, Delaware
A workshop will be held tomorrow at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville, Tennessee. And the last workshop this year will be held on December 10, 2010 at the Charleston School of Law in Charleston, South Carolina. (You can still register for that conference by clicking here.)
I'm attending the program today in San Diego at the California Western School of Law, where the other speakers include such notables as Linda Barris (Univeristy of Louisville Louis D. Brandeis School of Law and author of Understanding and Mastering The Bluebook: A Guide for Students and Practitioners) and Charles Calleros (professor at the Sandra Day O'Connor College of Law at Arizona State University and author of Legal Method and Writing).
The attendees include a large number of new teachers as well as many experienced professors.
If you attended one of the workshops, please send us a note about one (or more) of the presentations you attended today. We'll make you a "guest blogger" and post your note here with your thoughts about the program and any particularly helpful tips you picked up today.
