The Association of Legal Writing Directors (ALWD) will hold a Scholars' Forum in connection with the Third Annual Empire State Legal Writing Conference. The Scholars' Forum will take place on Friday, June 22, from 11:30 am to 5:00 pm at SUNY Buffalo School of Law in Buffalo, New York, a day before the Empire State Conference.
The Forum is open to as many as 12 faculty members who have scholarship in the works – from idea stage to a full draft article. The Forum will be led by the fabulous Sarah Ricks, a Clinical Professor of Law at the Rutgers School of Law – Camden. Participants will be divided into small groups with an experienced scholar as a leader, and will have an opportunity to present their scholarship and receive feedback from the group. Past participants have found the ALWD Forums to be a wonderful, supportive environment to exchange and develop ideas.
Scholarship projects on any topic are welcome, but the organizers encourage interdisciplinary scholarship that encompasses both legal communication and other academic disciplines.
There is no fee for either the Forum or the conference, but enrollment in the Forum is limited to 12 participants. We will fill spots on a first-come basis. The application deadline is Monday, June 4, 2012. To participate in the ALWD Scholars’ Forum, please register on the Conference web site by clicking here.
