Legal Writing Workshop at BLS

On Friday, December 2, 2011, Brooklyn Law School will host a one-day workshop sponsored by the Legal Writing Institute. It is one of a number of events scheduled at law schools around the country. BLS Librarian Kathy Darvil, who will co-present with Courtney Selby, Director of Hofstra Law Library on Legal Research for the New Millennials, will discuss her recent paper Think [and Practice] Like a Lawyer: Legal Research for the New Millennials which she co-authored with Prof. Aliza Kaplan.

The topics included in the workshops will include teaching legal writing; teaching persuasive writing, appellate advocacy, and moot court; legal research update; and other innovations. The workshops have, in the past, proven a great opportunity for legal writing faculty around the country to meet and share ideas and a great opportunity for adjunct faculty who are often unable to travel to gain some valuable experience and insight. The one-day workshops are a fundraiser for the LWI, and attendees are asked to pay a $100 registration fee, which will be donated to the LWI to enable it to continue its many fine and important programs. Host School attendees are asked to pay $25. Scholarships will be available for those who cannot pay the registration fee. Please register for the workshop at this online link.
