The American Bar Association Standing Committee on the Law Library of Congress, in cooperation with the ABA Section of International Law and other entities, will offer a free CLE legal research program during the upcoming ABA Annual Meeting in New York. The program will be on Friday, August 11, 2017 from 9:00 to 11:00 a.m. on "How to Conduct Free Legal Research Online." This complimentary CLE program is being graciously hosted by Duane Morris LLP, 14th Floor Boardroom, 1540 Broadway, New York.

TO ATTEND, YOU MUST RSVP BY AUGUST 4, 2017 to to jinny.choi@americanbar.org.

The Law Library of Congress is the world's largest law library, and this 2-hour program will share with you many of the features of the LLOC that you'll be able to access from almost anywhere in the world. It's sure to be a sell-out program (especially at this price). If you register and cannot attend, please let Jinny Choi know in case there is a waiting list.

Teaching Legal Writing: Thinking Outside the Box

Stetson’s Institute for the Advancement of Legal Communication is now in the second year of its project, Teaching Legal Writing: Out of the Box Ideas Inside. The goal of the project is to curate a set of legal writing teaching ideas in a box on your desk and provide related, password-protected materials to you online. This is the project that Kirsten Davis unveiled at the 2016 LWI Conference.  To learn more about the project, please click here.

If you already have The Box, Kirsten will send you a new set of teaching idea cards this fall (if she has your contact information, of course). If you need to update your address or if  you don't have "The Box," send an email to SendMeTheBox@stetson.edu.

Hat tip (and round of applause) to Kirsten Davis.
