The University of Maryland Francis King Carey School of Law will host the Tenth Annual LatCrit-SALT Junior Faculty Development Workshop (FDW) Oct. 4-5, 2012.

LatCrit, Inc. and the Society of American Law Teachers (SALT) are pleased to invite you to the Tenth Annual Junior Faculty Development Workshop (FDW), immediately preceding the SALT Teaching Conference.† This annual workshop is designed for critical, progressive, and social justice oriented pre-tenure professors, including clinicians and legal writing professors, as well as those who may be contemplating a teaching career.† However, we encourage more senior members of the profession to attend, share their experience, and serve as resources and mentors.

The FDW is designed to familiarize critical, progressive, and social justice oriented junior faculty with LatCrit and SALT principles and values and support them in the scholarship, teaching, and service aspects of professional success.† In addition, the FDW seeks to foster scholarship in progressive, social justice, and critical outsider jurisprudence, including LatCrit theory, among new and junior faculty, students, and practitioners.† Finally, the FDW aims to cultivate a community of scholars interested in the continuation of this and similar projects over the years.

Sessions at this yearís workshop will be focused on entering the academy, connecting critical theory and social justice lawyering in the classroom, developing a flourishing progressive scholarly agenda, and other topics especially relevant to academics interested in making social justice central to their teaching, scholarship, and activism.† This year we will also be offering a limited number of opportunities for FDW attendees who are not yet in the academy or are seeking to move within the academy to present mock job talks. And this year, as part of the community building dinner, the FDW will offer an open mic night!

Registration for the FDW (which will take place in conjunction with the SALT Teaching Conference) will open on August 15 through SALTís web site († For more information about the mock job talk opportunity, please email Professor Jonathan Glater or Professor Christopher Hines.† To sign up for the open mic night, email Professor Jaime Lee.
