Why Attend

Workshop for New Law Teachers - The 25th annual Workshop for New Law Teachers is designed to offer new law teachers ideas about teaching techniques and scholarly development and to enable them to share excitement, experiences and concerns about entering the academic world. The workshop provides an opportunity to discuss the expectations that students and colleagues may have about new teachers, and the most effective means for achieving professional success in the first few years of teaching. It will focus on issues of teaching and scholarship, as well as institutional and individual concerns of new law teachers.

Workshop for Beginning Legal Writing Teachers - The Workshop for Beginning Legal Writing Teachers is designed to offer new law faculty an introduction to the teaching of legal writing.
