    Incorporating discussions and lessons about gender into core law school courses is important to excellent classroom teaching, and it helps to ensure that discussions include diversity of viewpoints.  Yet meeting this pedagogical goal can be both controversial and challenging.  This program begins with speakers addressing the reasons for incorporating gender into the curriculum.  The program then turns to a panel of faculty who will explain how they incorporate lessons about gender in their courses, including Contracts, Criminal Law, Constitutional Law, Property, and Legal Writing.  Participants will leave the session with an understanding of why gender is a core value in law school teaching, along with ideas and materials for teaching gender as part of their courses.
