Conference Theme: The future of legal education has arrived, with more and more law schools moving toward teaching part or all of their J.D. program online. The circumstances of the last year have drawn that future into closer focus and allowed nearly all law professors to explore some version of online teaching. We want to harness the momentum of the online learning curve so we can continue to improve our teaching, whether online, hybrid, or in-person. To that end, conference presentations will offer suggestions for course design, assessment, engagement, and pedagogy. But they will also include conversations about what to take forward in our classes, regardless of the mode of instruction, as we move into whatever the future holds for our profession.
Conference Structure: Conference sessions will take place on Thursday, June 10, and Friday, June 11. All conference sessions will be via Zoom, including three plenary sessions from experts in the field of online education and more than a dozen concurrent workshops presented by law school colleagues from across the country. Descriptions of the specific topics for the plenary and concurrent sessions will be provided in subsequent communications.
Registration Information: Attendance is FREE, although registration is required. We hope attendees will join for any and all sessions that seem relevant and interesting to their current teaching focus and practice.
