With everyone stuck at home, Suzanna Sherry and I are starting a new Civil Procedure workshop, modeled on (and administered through the website of) Ed Cheng’s Unavailability Workshops on Evidence. We will meet via Zoom for 30 minutes on Tuesdays at 3 pm EDT, 2 pm CDT, 1 pm MDT, and noon PDT, starting on May 5. The meeting will be kept open after 30 minutes in case people still want to talk.
Each workshop will be moderated by Suzanna and me, and will feature a guest speaker. The speaker will focus on one FRCP or topic and talk about such things as current trends or controversies, interesting factoids, and/or teaching tips. Audience participation is encouraged, and there will also be Q&A.
The format is emphatically informal. Dress is casual, no prep is necessary, and if you need to step out because your kids are fighting or because the dog is barking, no worries, because we’re all in the same boat.
The workshop is open to the entire civil procedure teaching community. If you have new colleagues joining you this fall who will be teaching civil procedure, please feel free to share this information with them.
If you are interested, please register at www.unavailabilityworkshop.com (be sure to register for Civ Pro, not Evidence!) so that we can send you the Zoom meeting ID and password when the time comes. The website also contains additional logistic information on how to connect to the teleconference (e.g., you do not need a Zoom account, but you do need to download the app).
Our first speaker, on May 5, will be Alexi Lahav (Connecticut) who will be discussing Bristol-Myers Squibb: Going Forward.
