The McGeorge School of Law’s Global Lawyering Skills faculty presented and served on several panels at the Legal Writing Institute (LWI) Conference in Milwaukee, WI from July 11-14, 2018. The LWI biennial conference draws more than 500 legal writing faculty attendees from all over the world.
Professor Adrienne Brungess served as a panelist on the topic of “Teaching Students to Think Globally: The Why, What, and How of Infusing Transnational Law into the Legal Skills Curriculum” with colleagues from three other law schools, and she gave a poster presentation on “Integrating Tech & Maximizing Student Engagement: A Case for Laptops in the LRW Classroom.” She talked to colleagues about the Association of Legal Writing Directors (ALWD) Guide to Legal Citation during a session on “Ask an Adopter of ALWD.”
Associate Dean of Administration Jeffrey Proske served as a panelist on the topic of “Understanding Cultural Competency as a Core Lawyering "Skill"” with colleagues from three other law schools. Professors Lindsey Blanchard, Ederlina Co and Daniel Croxall served as panelists on the topic of “Things Have Changed Since You Were in Law School: Tips for New Teachers.” Professor Ed Telfeyan also attended the conference.
“We are very proud that so many of our faculty participated and presented at the conference,” said Associate Dean of Experiential Learning Mary-Beth Moylan. Moylan has been the director of the McGeorge Global Lawyering Skills program for the past decade, but with the maturation of the program, the group is transitioning to a director-less model this year.
In other exciting GLS program news, the faculty have all contributed to the second edition of the Global Lawyering Skills book, which is published by West and available for 2018-2019 classes.
