Technology and the Teaching of Legal Research & Writing will be the focus of the Third Colonial Frontier Legal Research and Writing Conference, which will be held at in Pittsburgh, at Duquesne, on Saturday, March 16, 2013.
This conference is intended to provide legal writing professors with the opportunity to improve their use of computer technology for teaching legal research and writing. A survey last year showed attendees would like demonstrations of how to use computer software and hardware; small-group workshops using their own laptops to do something new, under the presenter’s guidance; and discussions of the positive and negative effects of using computer technology. Proposals do not have to be limited to those approaches though. We'll post the call for proposals here when it comes out this fall semester.
