Workshops to Support New Law Faculty

Workshops to Support Transition to Teaching for New Law Faculty

AALS will again welcome new law school faculty with one to three years of experience to a specialized workshop from June 7–9 in Washington, D.C. The Workshop for New Law School Teachers is designed to support faculty in their transition into full-time teaching, as they learn to balance and embrace the competing demands of teaching, scholarship, and institutional service required in an academic career.

The planning committee has arranged strong programming, including several opportunities for the incoming faculty cohort to network and build relationships. This year’s program also includes sessions designed for clinical and experiential faculty. Attendees will participate in interactive sessions with experienced law school teachers focused on the following topics:

The knowledge shared and gained during this annual workshop is valuable for more than incoming first-year teachers; AALS will welcome a diverse group of faculty hired over the past three years as tenure-track, contract, or visiting assistant professors.
