The 16th Global Legal Skills Conference will be held June 4-6, 2024, and will be hosted by the University of Bari Aldo Moro in Bari, Italy. Bari is in the Puglia region of southern Italy on the Adriatic Sea.
The Conference Proposal Form can be found at https://forms.gle/LjEzMYHBim61rbuYA. The deadline for submitting a proposal is Wednesday, Feb. 28, 2024, at 11:59 p.m. GMT.
Please submit a proposal on any aspect of Global Legal Skills, including experiential learning, distance education, comparative law, international law, course design and materials, teaching methods, and opportunities for teaching abroad and in the United States. Please include information about your institutional affiliations, if any. Because the conference focuses on legal skills for a global audience, please tailor your proposal accordingly.
Presentation proposals should demonstrate a focus on global aspects of legal skills education or legal practice. If proposals overlap in themes or content, presenters may be selected and asked to present on a panel related to that theme.
Presentation Format. There are two presentation options*: 1.) Lecture/Panel or 2.) Poster.
All lecture/panel presentations will be 20 minutes. The Poster presentations will take place in a plenary session in a gallery setting. Most panel presentations will be in English but proposals in other languages are also welcome. The conference attracts an international audience and the conference organizers do not believe that global legal skills exist only in English.
*45-minute presentations will be available on a limited basis. If you would like to be considered for one of these limited availability sessions, you will be asked to describe how you will optimize the longer session. Preference will be given to those presentations that offer active audience engagement and experiential skills training. (If you are not selected for one of these 45-minute sessions, you may be offered a 20-minute session or poster session based on your preference for a lecture/panel or poster presentation).
All presenters and attendees will be required to register, pay the conference registration fee, and cover their own costs related to attending the conference.
