scholars' forum deadline today

Legalwriting-2This is a last minute reminder that the deadline is TODAY, March 5, 2012, to apply to participate in the ALWD Scholars' Forum being held in conjunction with the Rocky Mountain Legal Writing Conference. The Forum will take place on Sunday, March 25, from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at the Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law in sunny Tempe, Arizona.

If you are a professor who has legal-writing scholarship in the works – from idea stage to full-blown article - this forum is for you. The Forum will give you an opportunity to present your scholarship idea in a supportive environment. Non-tenured legal writing faculty are especially encouraged to apply, but anyone with an idea in need of development is welcome. Although scholarship ideas should relate to topics in our field, our field is wide-ranging.

At the forum, you will be put in a small group with roughly similar topics. An experienced legal scholar will lead each group. You will present your topic and receive feedback from the experienced scholars and the others in the group. The experienced scholars will be:  Linda Berger, Professor of Law, William S. Boyd School of Law, UNLV, and Suzanne Rowe, James L. and Ilene R. Hershner Professor, University of Oregon School of Law. 

There is no fee to participate, but enrollment is limited to 12 participants. To participate in the Rocky Mountain ALWD Scholars’ Forum, e-mail Professor Carrie Sperling at, including "ALWD Scholars’ Forum" in your subject line and a one paragraph description of your work in progress or scholarship idea in the message itself.
