As you plan your fall semester, remember to include the Central States Legal Writing Conference. The University of Kansas School of Law will host the Conference on Friday and Saturday, September 27-28, 2013. You can register on the conference website, where you will also find information about travel, accommodations, and scheduling.
KU will host an ALWD Scholars’ Forum in connection with the conference, at noon on Friday, September 27. This is a terrific opportunity to present and discuss an idea you are currently considering turning into an article, receive critiques on an article you are currently drafting, or have a draft paper peer reviewed. Suzanne Rowe of the University of Oregon, Michael Murray of Valparaiso University Law School, and Virginia Harper Ho of KU will be among those facilitating the forum. You can register for the Forum on the conference website. Participation is limited and participants will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis, so register soon!
While the regular conference presentations slots are full, the organizers are still accepting 5-minute “Take-Away” presentations for the conference. Toward the end of the second day of the conference, presenters will have 5 minutes to explain a teaching technique or idea. By the end of that session, participants and attendees will have a number of great ideas they can immediately implement in the classroom. To make a “Take-Away” presentation you must submit a participation form, also located on the conference website.
