Save the Date: Teaching Multicultural Lawyering Conference
WMU-Cooley Law School is pleased to announce the online conference Teaching Multicultural Lawyering: Development, Integration and Conversation. There is no charge to attend.
The conference, and a recently completed textbook Multicultural Lawyering: Navigating the Culture of the Law, the Lawyer, and the Client (https://cap-press.com/books/isbn/9781531020415/Multicultural-Lawyering) was born from their course Multicultural Lawyering.
The conference will focus on teaching stand-alone courses in the topic, infusing multicultural lawyering throughout the curriculum, teaching multicultural instruction within professional identity programs, and developing learning outcomes for the topic. Some of the sessions will have break-out groups to facilitate small, in-depth discussions. There will be a keynote panel sharing the experiences of faculty who have been teaching these topics for many years, with an opportunity for discussion with them as well.
The online conference will take place on Thursday, March 11 (from Noon-3:30 p.m. EST) and Friday, March 12, 2021 (11 a.m.-4:30 p.m. EST).
The conference agenda is designed to accommodate the many demands on your time by focusing on two afternoons with two sessions each day and a keynote panel discussion on Friday.
