This past week, I've been lucky enough to attend the Legal Writing Institute One-Day Workshops at George Washington University Law School and Villanova University School of Law. Kudos to GW's Iselin Gambert (my former student!) and Villanova's Heather Baum and Candance Centeno for coordinating those programs, and to Laurel Oates and Joan Rocklin for coordinating the workshops nationwide.
There are four different themes for this year's workshops: The Evolving Legal Writing Classroom, Preparing Practice-Ready Students, Student Populations: Diversity Matters, and The Scholarly Way.
I love these workshops (some of which were recapped earlier on the blog), which always give me new perspectives and ideas on everything from my writing assignments, to classroom exercises, to my own scholarship.
If I've piqued your interest, I have good news...there's still a chance to attend one of the remaining workshops, most of which are this Friday, December 7, at the following law schools:
- Drake University Law School (Des Moines, IA)
- Michigan State University College of Law (East Lansing, MI)
- New York Law School (New York, NY)
- Nova Southeastern Univ. Law Center (Ft. Lauderdale, FL)
- Southern University Law Center (Baton Rouge, LA)
- Texas Wesleyan School of Law (Ft Worth, TX)
- University of Akron School of Law (Akron, OH)
- University of Arizona (Tuscon, AZ)
- University of California at Berkeley (Berkeley, CA)
- University of North Carolina School of Law (Chapel Hill, NC)
- University of San Diego School of Law (San Diego, CA)
The final workshop is at Willamette University College of Law (Salem, OR) on Saturday, December 8.
