Clinical Law Review's Clinical Writers' Workshop
October 2-3, 2010 at N.Y.U. School of Law
Registration Deadline: June 2, 2010
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 Writers' Workshop provides 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.
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. If you have already submitted a paper proposal to the New York Law School Clinical Theory Workshop Anniversary conference, you're welcome to submit it for the Clinical Law Review Writers' Workshop, but you are also welcome, of course, to submit a paper proposal to the Clinical Law Review Writers' Workshop other than the one that you submitted to the New York Law School Clinical Theory Workshop Anniversary Conference. (You can attend the New York Law School Clinical Theory Workshop conference, by the way, 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.
