DATE:  Thursday, December 10, 2015 (9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.)

Melbourne Law School is pleased to host a one day symposium on Teaching Legal Analysis and Writing Skills on December 10.  The symposium will be an opportunity for professional development in a fun and interactive series of sessions where everyone can share ideas, resources, and inspiration.

Proposals may be geared to either new or experienced teachers.  Possible topics include (but are not limited to) development of online resources, use of peer review in assessment, use of games to explain/demonstrate legal analysis and communication, flipped classrooms, live readings during individual conferences, use of technology, rubrics, electronic assessments, improving literacy, and working with students studying English as a second language.

If you are interested in presenting, please submit a proposal for a 25-minute workshop. See the Call for Proposals for more details. The deadline for proposals is Monday, September 7, 2015, at 5:00 p.m.  Contact Chantal Morton with any other questions.

Crosscutting, Discussion Group, and Academy programs:  April 13, 2015

Symposium Programs: May 12, 2015

American Law Schools is pleased to request proposals for open-submission programs for the 2016 Annual Meeting to be held January 6-10, 2016 in New York City.  
There will be five types of open-submission programs for the 2016 Annual Meeting:
•    Crosscutting programs focus on multi-subject and interdisciplinary topics that transcend any one legal field and offer new perspectives on legal issues or the profession.
•    [New] Discussion Group programs are sessions that provide a setting for less formal discussion of topics among a larger group of participants.
    [New] Academy programs are open-submission programs that do not fit into any of the other four categories.  Have an idea for a great program that does not fit into any of the other categories?  Submit a proposal for an academy program.
•    Symposium programs are full- or half-day sessions that focus on in-depth scholarly exploration of a topic of academic interest.
•    Hot Topic programs focus on topics that emerged too late to be included in other types of programs.
