The Third Annual Educating Tomorrow's Lawyers Conference begins today in Denver. This year's theme is Accelerating Competency: Assessment in Legal Education.
"Traditional notions of assessment in legal education have limited our capacity to truly measure whether law students are receiving the education and training they need to enter the profession. Rather than using assessment as a sorting mechanism, assessment can and should be used as a powerful educational tool to serve a critical role in lawyer preparation and in improving legal education.
This conference will demonstrate how assessment can be used for teaching, for learning, and as support for law schools and educators when developing new or innovative models."
Keep up with the conference by using hashtag #ETLConference and following the conference at @ETLInitiative on Twitter, or on ETL's Facebook page. I am sure that ETL's director, Alli Gerkman will also have something to say on her twitter page here.
