CFP: The Many Connections Between Well-Being and Professionalism in the Practice of Law

Written by OSULEGALSCHOLARSHIP   // April 8, 2013   // Comments Off

The AALS section on Balance in Legal Education announces its program topic for the 2014 AALS annual meeting: The Many Connections Between Well-Being and Professionalism in the Practice of Law.

The focus of this topic will be how well-being contributes to, and may indeed be necessary for, the ethical, civil, and responsible practice of law.  This topic naturally calls upon presenters to think about the intersection between the growing research in the field of law student and lawyer well-being and traditional law school subjects such as professional responsibility, as well as practice-oriented classes such as clinical courses, legal writing, and trial practice.

Accepted submissions on the topic will be published in the University of Arkansas at Little Rock Law Review to publish papers relating to this program.

Deadline: April 30, 2013. Send submissions with a brief description of the perspective that you would bring to the topic, whether you wish to be a member of the panel and/or prepare a paper for publication, and a copy of a current curriculum vitae to tpeter[@]law.gwu.edu. Preference will be given to ”presentation proposals that include interactive demonstrations of teaching methods and collaborative work with other program participants, and we are especially interested in how these issues can be addressed in large traditional classroom settings.” im
