Suffolk University Law School hosts the 2015 New England Consortium of Legal Writing Teachers Conference on Friday, September 18, 2015. The conference theme is “Maximizing Student and Faculty Potential.” This broad theme encompasses a wide range of interests, including topics relevant to legal writing, academic support, career and professional development, diversity, technology, and innovation.
Proposals are invited for a 25 or 50 minute presentation, or a 30-minute workshop. Conference planners are offering a workshop format for discussion of teaching or scholarship ideas or other topics in small groups. The workshop will entail a 10-minute presentation followed by 20 minutes of discussion.
Deadline: Friday, August 21, 2015 at 5 pm EST. Please submit the following information by completing this form attached and emailing it to: neconference[@]suffolk.edu.
Additionally, a Writing Lockdown will be offered on Thursday, September 17, 2015, 2:00-5:00 p.m. Come with a writing goal in mind. Bring your writing project (an article, book, etc.) to work on as well as any materials you need (laptop, paper, writing utensil, etc.). No submissions are necessary as your writing can be at any stage (notes, an outline, a draft, etc.) and will not be reviewed; just let the conference organizers know if you would like to attend all or part of the lockdown.
Registration is free for all presenters and attendees. Please contact Professor Rosa Kim (rkim[@]suffolk.edu) or Professor Kathleen Elliott Vinson (kvinson[@]suffolk.edu) with any questions.
