Call for Papers: 2019 Applied Legal Storytelling Conference

Sponsored by the Legal Writing Institute and CLEA, the Applied Legal Storytelling Conference brings together academics, judges, and practitioners:

The conference has previously convened in 2007 (London), 2009 (Portland), 2011 (Denver), 2013 (London), Seattle (2015), and Washington D.C. (2017). We are very excited to bring it back to the Mountain West (Boulder) in July 2019. Applied Legal Storytelling (AppLS) examines the use of stories—and of storytelling or narrative elements—in law practice, legal education, and the law. This definition is intentionally broad in order to allow people creativity in the way they think and present on the topic. Such topics may include: the ways in which fiction-writing techniques or narrative theory can inform legal storytelling; stories in the law, or law as stories; legal storytelling and metaphor; client story advocacy; legal storytelling and cognitive science; and ethical considerations in legal storytelling.

The conference is in Boulder, Colorado, July 9–11 2019. There are two deadlines for submitting proposals: January 21, 2019 (priority deadline) and March 11, 2019 (extended deadline).
