Why Attend? 

At the 30th annual Workshop, new law teachers will share their excitement, experiences and concerns with each other and with a roster of senior and junior faculty chosen for their track record of success and their diversity of scholarly and teaching approaches. These professors will pass along invaluable advice about teaching and testing techniques and tips for developing, placing and promoting one's scholarship.   Speakers will also address how to manage the demands of institutional service, as well as the expectations of students and colleagues, along with special challenges that arise when confronting controversial topics.

 

Who Should Attend?

The Workshop will benefit newly appointed faculty members, including teachers with up to two years of teaching experience, and those with appointments as visiting assistant professors.

Why Attend? The Workshop for New Clinical Law School Teachers is designed to offer new law faculty an introduction to clinical teaching, and to the challenges of balancing the various roles that clinical teachers are expected to perform.  The Workshop will address the basic tasks of the clinical teacher-- setting goals for clinical courses, teaching professional skills and values, supervising  students and producing scholarship—and will provide the perspective of clinicians who were recently new teachers themselves.  Concurrent sessions will focus on clinical program design and navigating the academy.  At lunch, the "Future Trends" session will present a role play on modeling an integration project.

 

Who Should Attend? 

The Workshop for New Clinical Law School Teachers should be of interest to new teachers of in-house and externship clinical courses and to all new teachers interested in clinical teaching methodology.

AALS would like to thank and recognize the Law School Admission Council for their generous grant to support this Workshop.

 

Why Attend?

 From their first day of teaching until tenure, minority law teachers face special challenges in the legal academy. At this workshop, diverse panels of experienced and successful law professors will focus on these issues as they arise in the context of scholarship, teaching, service and the tenure process.  The workshop dovetails with the AALS Workshop for New Law School Teachers by providing sustained emphasis on the distinctive situations of pretenured people of color law school teachers.

 

Who Should Attend? 

The Workshop will be of interest to newly appointed people of color law school teachers as well as junior professors who are navigating the tenure process and looking for guidance and support.
