Thursday, June 6 – Saturday, June 8
Whether you are about to begin your first semester of teaching or your fifth, this workshop provides an opportunity to consider your new career through your multiple roles as teacher, scholar, mentor, and institutional citizen. The conference is open to new and nearly-new law teachers, including those joining law school faculties as tenure-track, lecturer, clinical, or visiting appointees.
At this workshop, participants will be able to share their experiences and concerns both with each other and with a roster of inspirational scholars and teachers chosen for their commitment to legal education, the distinction they have achieved in their own careers, and the diversity of their scholarly and pedagogical approaches. These speakers will pass along valuable advice about developing, placing, and promoting one’s scholarship as well as tips and techniques for successful student engagement and assessment. They will also address the often-competing demands of institutional service and the evolving expectations of law students and faculty colleagues.
There is something truly special about an event that draws together new law faculty from around the country. We look forward to welcoming new faculty members as they settle into this phase of their legal career.
