The Clinical Law Review will hold its third Clinical Writers’ Workshop on the afternoon of Saturday, October 2, and the morning of Sunday, October 3, at NYU Law School. The Workshop will follow a celebration at New York Law School of the 25th Anniversary of the Clinical Theory Workshop on Friday, October 1, and the morning of Saturday, October 2.
The Clinical Law Review’s Workshop will provide an opportunity for clinical teachers who are writing about any subject (clinical pedagogy, substantive law, interdisciplinary analysis, empirical work, etc.) to meet with other clinicians writing on similar topics to discuss their works-in-progress and brainstorm ideas for further development of their articles. Attendees will meet in small groups organized by the subject matter in which they are writing. Each group will "workshop" the draft of each member of the group.
Those who would like to attend both workshops are welcome to propose the same paper for both workshops. Participation in the Clinical Law Review’s Workshop requires the submission of a paper because the workshop takes the form of small group sessions in which all members of the group comment on each other’s manuscripts. (You can attend the Clinical Theory Workshop conference, however, without submitting a paper.)
As in the previous two Clinical Law Review Workshops, participants will not have to pay an admission or registration fee but participants will have to arrange and pay for their own travel and lodgings. To assist those who wish to participate but who need assistance for travel and lodging, NYU Law School has committed to provide 25 scholarships of up to $1,000 per person to help pay for travel and lodgings. The scholarships are designed for those clinical faculty who receive little or no travel support from their law schools and who otherwise would not be able to attend this conference without scholarship support. The scholarships will be conditioned upon recipients' submission of a draft of an article for discussion at the Workshop.
Applications to register for the conference and applications for scholarships are due on June 2, 2010. The Board will circulate application materials at the AALS clinical conference in early May and will also post these materials on-line on relevant listservs and websites. To seek a scholarship, applicants will need to submit a mini-draft or prospectus, roughly three to five pages in length, of the article they intend to present at the workshop, and also a proposed budget for travel and lodgings. The Board will review all scholarship applications and issue decisions about scholarships in early July. Recipients of a scholarship will be asked to submit a full draft of their article by September 1, 2010.
