    Is sustained attention a skill that should be taught in law school experiential programs? What are effective methods for teaching such a skill across different clinical models? How do you tailor your teaching to various types of legal work requiring sustained attention? These questions and more will be explored in this concurrent session. Focus on strengthening sustained attention in our students within law school experiential programs is relevant to this year’s conference theme of teaching foundational and emerging skills. It is an opportunity to generate concrete strategies to enhance the skill sets of students who now come to law school as digital natives and who face the challenge of working effectively and efficiently. The presenters will approach the session topic from three different angles: opportunities and challenges; methods and tools; and assessment of teaching effectiveness. Using reflective and interactive exercises as tools to hone sustained attention, we will break out into small groups, reflect on the experience, and debrief afterward with the large group. Session participants will take away an understanding of how to teach law students to cultivate sustained attention across legal work calling for the skill.
