The facilitators were:

The workshop had morning presentations of scholarly articles and book chapters in the Workshop and presentations for scholarly topics in the Forum.  After that hard work, everyone enjoyed a "Lunch with Legends."  Special guests included legal writing superstars Mary Lawrence (Oregon), Charles Calleros (ASU), Terri LeClercq (Texas), and Laurel Oates (Seattle).  The event coincided with the Western Regional Legal Writing Conference.
