Central States Legal Writing Conference
September 27-28, 2013 | Lawrence, Kansas | #centralstates13
The University of Kansas School of Law will host the 2013 Central States Legal Writing Conference on Friday and Saturday, September 27-28, 2013. The conference theme is Creating Context & Connections.
The Central States Conference will focus on methods to help students succeed in the classroom and beyond. We’ll discuss many topics, including:
- How do we build student knowledge and skill to maximize learning in first-year and advanced courses?
- How do we help students see the interconnectivity between legal writing and their doctrinal courses or clinical work?
- How do we help students connect what they learn in legal writing to the practice of law (so they are more “practice-ready”)?
- How can we contextualize the classroom to “keep it real”?
Presenters will share their teaching techniques, curriculum ideas, research, assessment methods, and technology ideas to help you design creative, effective teaching methods.
In addition to hearing from others, bring your ideas on these and related topics to the Central States Conference. Consider making a 5-minute presentation on a teaching idea in our “Take-Away” breakout sessions.
KU Law will also host an ALWD Scholars’ Forum on Friday, September 27, in connection with the conference. This is a terrific opportunity to present and discuss an idea you are currently considering turning into an article, receive critiques on an article you are currently drafting, or have a draft paper peer reviewed.
