Washburn University School of Law is proud to announce the second annual Washburn Junior Legal Writing Scholars Workshop, to be held on July 24-25, 2015. Expressions of interest are due by April 17, 2015.
This workshop will provide a unique collaborative environment in which to receive feedback from other legal writing professors on your scholarly projects. Participants will work in small groups to give suggestions, ask questions, and offer input on the papers presented.
The workshop organizers, Professors Emily Grant and Joseph Mastrosimone, strongly encourage scholarship submissions that are in any stage – idea outline, work-in-progress, or nearly complete and ready to submit. The call is open to all junior legal writing professors (defined as anyone without tenure) whether they are full-time, part-time, or adjunct faculty and those who are seeking employment as a legal writing professor.
There is no registration fee for the workshop. In addition, Washburn University School of Law will provide all meals during the workshop and hotel lodging for Friday night, July 24. The workshop will run from mid-afternoon Friday to mid-day Saturday to give participants sufficient time to travel Friday morning and Saturday evening, which should hopefully allow participants to attend the workshop without needing a second night’s hotel stay.
If you are interested in participating in the Washburn Junior Legal Writing Scholars Workshop, please let us know by April 17, 2015, by emailing me (Joseph Mastrosimone: firstname.lastname@example.org). In your email, please provide a short description of your scholarly work and give us your best guess as to what form it will take by the end of July (outline, early stage work-in-progress, nearly complete draft). A maximum of eight papers will be selected to guarantee a workshop atmosphere. Those selected will be notified by May 15, and workshop submissions must be completed by July 13, 2015.
