The following is posted at the request of Profs. Naomi Cahn and Deborah S. Gordon:
We are hoping to encourage more trusts and estates programming at the Southeastern Association of Law Schools conference, which will be held from August 6-12 in Ft. Lauderdale. We will be proposing two discussion groups, described below, one which focuses on pedagogy and one on scholarship; please let us know if you would like to participate. In addition, please feel free to propose a panel or discussion group yourself; here is the submission information, http://www.sealslawschools.org/submissions/.
PROPOSED DISCUSSION GROUPS
Both pedagogy and scholarship within trusts and estates are moving beyond traditional core topics. We are proposing two plenary discussion groups that explore how pedagogy and scholarship are expanding the ways of teaching and studying trusts and estates and related doctrines. One group will address innovations in teaching, including both skills and doctrine, and teaching about topics that overlap with other areas of the law, such as Elder Law, Family Law, Property, and Professional Responsibility; the second group will explore new scholarship.
