News & Skills: Collaboration Workshop in Philadelphia

Posted on behalf of Amy Vorenberg, Director, Legal Writing and Professor of Law at the University of New Hampshire School of Law. NOTE:  At least one session will address different approaches to incorporating legislative drafting and advocacy into the legal writing classroom

FREE workshop  - Bringing Outside In: Social Justice Collaborations in the Legal Writing Curriculum. The date is June 29, 2014,  8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. at  Drexel University School of Law in Philadelphia.

Workshop Description:  This free one-day workshop will explore how legal writing faculty can collaborate with clinics, non-profits, and pro bono projects to expand experiential learning opportunities for students by bringing social justice practice experience into legal writing teaching.

Many legal writing faculty expand skills training by creating partnerships with public interest organizations, clinics, pro bono programs, and externships. The workshop will be a forum for discussion of specific collaborations that workshop participants have undertaken or hope to launch. The projects can be full-blown courses, short-term collaborations on discrete projects, incremental collaborations among faculty, or ideas for future partnerships.  They can take place within the required legal writing curriculum, in upper-division courses, or in conjunction with pro bono, externship, or clinical programs.

The workshop will provide a platform for sharing ideas and continuing to develop a community around enriching students’ educational experiences through public interest collaborations that offer opportunities for experiential learning.
