The Legal Writing Institute announced that the eighth LWI Writers’ Workshop will take place on July 11-13, 2011 at the Colorado Chautauqua at the foot of Boulder’s Flatiron Mountains. The workshop will give up to twelve Legal Writing faculty the opportunity to spend time working on their academic writing projects and improving their scholarly skills.
The Workshop will take place immediately after the Applied Storytelling Conference at the University of Denver Law School. Workshop participants will leave Denver on the morning of Monday, July 11 and return to Denver on the morning of Wednesday, July 13, 2011. All members of the Legal Writing Institute are eligible to apply for the Workshop. You must have a scholarly writing project well underway and beyond the initial stages of performing the initial research and drafting a tentative outline. You must at least have some sort of partial draft. You should arrive with a substantial work product. In most cases, a scholarly writing project should result in a law review article.
Participants make presentations on their projects to small groups of three and receive feedback. Each session runs about ninety minutes. They also may take part in several guided discussion groups, each on a different topic. Participants will also have time to work on their drafts. Facilitators for the Workshop will be Steve Johansen (Lewis & Clark), Jill Ramsfield (Hawaii), Chris Rideout (Seattle), and Lou Sirico (Villanova).
Participants will pay approximately $300 as a registration fee plus their transportation to and from Denver. LWI will cover transportation to and from Chautauqua, the cost of the facility, and all meals on July 11 and 12 plus breakfast on July 13.
