On June 22-24, 2017, AALS will again offer the annual Workshop for New Law Teachers in Washington DC. This workshop is an effective way to prepare new faculty to be top notch scholars and teachers from their first year on. The knowledge gained and shared during the workshop is beneficial for more than incoming first-year teachers. This workshop is designed to benefit any faculty hired over the past three years, if they were not able to participate in a prior workshop.
Faculty who attend the workshop will participate in interactive sessions with experienced law school teachers about preparing for teaching, becoming better scholars, and fostering student engagement. This year’s program covers both teaching and scholarship and includes several sessions designed for legal research and writing faculty:

Breakout Sessions on Scholarship: Designing Your Research Agenda from Scratch; Pursuing Your Research Agenda; Legal Research and Writing
