Save the Date: December 2018 Global Legal Skills Conference in Melbourne, Australia
It's 18 months away, so you can block out the days on your calendar and start saving your frequent flier miles for a trip to Australia for the next Global Legal Skills Conference.
The 13th Global Legal Skills Conference will be held at Melbourne Law School from December 10-12, 2018.
The Conference will be co-sponsored by The John Marshall Law School of Chicago (where the conference series was founded). The Conference Co-Chairs will be Chantal Morton (Director of the Legal Academic Skills Centre and Director of Teaching at Melbourne Law School) and Mark E. Wojcik (Professor at The John Marshall Law School and founder of the Global Legal Skills Conference Series).
Previous Global Legal Skills Conferences have been held in Chicago, Washington, D.C., Costa Rica, Mexico, and, most recently, Italy. The conference is the leading global conference dedicated to legal skills education, and participants come from around the world to attend the conference. Participants include law professors, professors of English as Second Language, lawyers, judges, court interpreters, law students, language students, and other academics.
The GLS-13 Conference is being presented in cooperation with a number of international organizations, including these organizations already confirmed:
- Scribes--The American Society of Legal Writers
- The Teaching International Law Interest Group of the American Branch of the International Law Association
We acknowledge and pay respect to the Traditional Owners of the lands upon which the Melbourne Law School is situated.
I have been trying to register for this conference but the website says the registration form is not open to the public. Can someone help me with this, please. Also, when will the schedule of presentations be available?
