We are pleased to announce the return of the Rocky Mountain Legal Writing Conference in Las Vegas. Please save the date and plan to join us February 24-25, 2023. The event is hosted by the William S. Boyd School of Law at UNLV and held at the college’s Thomas & Mack Moot Courtroom.
The Rocky Mountain Regional Legal Writing Conference began in 2000 at University of Arizona Law as the brainchild of Professor Suzanne Rabe (University of Arizona Law), Professor Judy Stinson (Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law at ASU) and Professor Terrill Pollman (William S. Boyd School of Law at UNLV). The three professors designed the conference as an informal exchange of teaching ideas among legal writing professors from schools in the loosely defined “Rocky Mountain” region, but it quickly grew into one of the largest and most popular regional legal writing conferences in the nation, drawing participants from across the nation and, indeed, across the globe.
Over the years, the conference location has rotated among the three founding schools, but has also taken place at other schools in the region, including the University of Colorado Law School in Boulder; the University of New Mexico School of Law in Albuquerque; the University of Denver Sturm College of Law in Denver and the University of Utah S.J. Quinney College of Law in Salt Lake City.
For over twenty years, thanks to the support of generous sponsors, the conference has offered free registration to all attendees. Anyone who administers or teaches in a legal writing program, whether full- or part-time, is welcome.
