APPEAL has announced its next conference will take place December 8-10, 2011, at the University of Zululand's Richards Bay Campus (about 90 miles north of Durban, South Africa). The focus of the conference will be Preparing Students for the Practice of Law: Helping Students Develop Their Ability to Read and Write in English. The conference will focus on meeting the challenges facing African academics when teaching legal writing, including large classes, lack of resources, inadequate secondary preparation, and multilingual students, to prepare African students to practice law in an increasingly global society.
We will post the call for proposals here when it becomes available in May. In the meantime, you can direct questions to Mimi Samuel, APPEAL Co-President, at firstname.lastname@example.org, or either of the co-chairs of the Conference Committee, Janet Dickson at email@example.com or Olugbenga Oke-Samuel at firstname.lastname@example.org.
