The Program Committee invites participants to submit proposals for conference presentations. Presentations may be on any subject of interest to those teaching legal writing and research. Presenters have two options regarding time:

  1. We encourage presenters to suggest ideas for 25-minute slots. These are often practical presentations on teaching methods or assignments that have been especially successful for you. We have many of these slots available.
  2. We also anticipate having a few slots open for 50-minute presentations.

The deadline for proposals is Friday, January 10, 2014. To submit a presentation proposal, please send the following information to Sara Gordon at and Susie Salmon at

  1. Contact information for all presenters and co-presenters
  2. Title of presentation
  3. Brief (one paragraph) description of the presentation
  4. Time needed for presentation (25 minutes or 50 minutes)
  5. Technology needs for the presentation

The Program Committee will make decisions on proposals no later than Friday, January 17, 2014 to provide enough time for presenters to make travel plans. If you need a decision earlier in order to secure travel funding, please let us know as soon as possible and we will consider your proposal on a rolling basis.
