Southern Clinical Conference Update
Here is an update from the Southern Clinical Conference Planning Committee:
We are touching base with more exciting news about the 2015 Southern Clinical Conference, which will be held at the University of Memphis Cecil C. Humphreys School of Law on October 22-24, 2015. First, please be reminded about the July 17, 2015 deadline to submit a proposal for plenary, concurrent, or workshop sessions related to our conference theme of Confronting Issues of Race and Diversity in Clinical Legal Education (see Request for Proposal materials attached to D. Schaffzin e-mail of May 26, 2015).
Apart from plenary, concurrent, and workshop sessions, the 2015 Southern Clinical Conference will also include a time slot dedicated for participants to present works-in-progress. We invite works-in-progress proposals from new and experienced scholars, on all topics, at all stages of development, from completed drafts to half-baked ideas. The work-in-progress topic does NOT need to relate in any way to the conference theme.
We also are looking for volunteer discussants to facilitate dialogue about each work-in-progress project during the sessions. Work-in-progress presenters will have an opportunity to work with discussants in advance of the conference to tailor the session to meet their goals -- whether receiving detailed feedback on a draft, developing particular ideas, or devising a publication strategy.
For more information, please consult the attached work-in-progress request for proposals, cover sheet, and template.
Prospective Work-in-Progress Presenters: please send proposals to Sandra Love ([email protected]) by August 15th.
Prospective Work-in-Progress Discussants: please send an email to Sandra Love ([email protected]) by August 15th indicating your interest and listing any topic areas in which you have a particular interest or expertise. If you would be open to serving as a discussant with regard to a paper of any topic, please note that, too.
Please contact the Planning Committee if we can be of any assistance. Work-in-Progress presenters from all regions are welcome. Join us and present your work in a fun and supportive environment!
We look forward to your proposals. Registration details and other reminders regarding the Southern Clinical Conference will be coming later this summer.
