The Southeast Regional Legal Writing Conference has issued a call for proposals for its conference on April 15-16, 2011 in Macon, Georgia. The conference theme will be “Opening the Lens: Re-Visions in Legal Writing Teaching, Theory, & Practice.” The deadline for conference proposals is January 21, 2011.
The conference intends to focus on interdisciplinary approaches that enrich understanding of legal interpretation and composition and highlight the ways in which legal writing teachers integrate theory and practice. Proposals may draw on interdisciplinary perspectives or emphasize new ways to bring together theory and practice in legal writing teaching, scholarship, and service. The Program Committee encourages proposals for 25-minute individual presentations or panel discussions but anticipates that there will also be a few 55-minute slots.
Proposals must be submitted by email to Jennifer Sheppard, Program Committee Co-Chair, at Sheppard_jl [at] law.mercer.edu. The deadline to submit proposals is January 21, 2011. Please include the following in the proposal submission:
- Title of proposed presentation or panel.
