03/23/18 to 03/24/18
We are excited to announce that the Eighteenth Annual Rocky Mountain Legal Writing Conference will be held on March 23-24, 2018, at the University of Denver Sturm College of Law. The theme of this year’s conference is “Wellness for You, Your Students, & Your Career,” but the Program Committee encourages proposals on any subject of interest to those teaching legal writing and research.
Presenters have two time options: 25-minute presentation: These presentations typically address teaching methods or assignments that have been especially successful for you. 50-minute presentation: These presentations may be an individual or panel presentations. A panel presentation should consist of a moderator and at least two presenters (preferably 3-5 presenters).
*Each participant may submit up to two proposals, but each participant can present only once at this regional conference.
The deadline for proposals is Friday, December 8, 2017. To submit a presentation proposal, please send the following information to Wendy-Adele Humphrey at firstname.lastname@example.org and Samantha A. Moppett at email@example.com: 1. Contact information for all presenters and co-presenters; 2. Title of presentation; 3. Brief description of the presentation (200-word maximum); 4. Time needed for the presentation (25 minutes or 50 minutes); and 5. Technology needs for the presentation.
As always, registration is free, though we will need all participants to register so we have an accurate head count. We hope to have decisions made by mid-December to give everyone enough time to make travel plans. We look forward to receiving your proposals and seeing you at the conference! Program Committee, Wendy-Adele Humphrey, Co-Chair (Texas Tech) Samantha A. Moppett, Co-Chair (Suffolk) Suzanna Moran (Denver) Ken Swift (Houston)
