Dear Friends & Colleagues:
On behalf of the editorial staff of The Learning Curve (Chelsea Baldwin, DeShun Harris, and Christina Chong), I'm pleased to announce this additional call for submissions for our upcoming Summer 2017 issue. The Learning Curve is a newsletter reporting on issues and ideas for the Association of American Law Schools (AALS) Section on Academic Support and the general law school academic & bar support community.
The deadline for this call is July 1, 2017. We are expecting to publish another general topic/theme issue.
As the final exam season has just begun to pass us, I'm sure this moment can give us pause on what innovative teaching methods, techniques, and/or experiences we might have come across this year. So if you have an idea, a lesson, or a perspective on ASP or bar teaching to share, please consider submitting to The Learning Curve. As examples of the types of articles we publish, I have attached this past Winter's edition. Articles should be 500 to 2,000 words in length, with light references, if appropriate, and attached as a Word file. Please send your inquiries and submissions to LearningCurveASP@gmail.com.
Lastly, as our editorial terms have three-year expiration dates, the time has come for me to step down from The Learning Curve. It has been my pleasure to have served as the Executive Editor of the The Learning Curve in this past academic year, and to have served on the editorial board for the last three academic years. I hope that the articles we've published on ASP and bar support have continued to push law teaching forward and have served collectively as a supportive voice for our endeavors in the academy. I'd like to thank those wonderful authors who have published with us during those years, and the terrific colleagues who have worked with me on the board during that time. I hand off the Executive Editorship to Chelsea Baldwin, who will invariably keep that torch lit. Thank you all very, very much.
All the best,
