Call for Panelists — Teaching Access to Justice — AALS 2018 — San Diego, CA

American Association of Law Schools

Prospective participants for a panel titled “Innovations in Teaching Access to Justice Across the Law School Curriculum” are invited to apply. The panel—to be held on Friday, January 5, 2018, 8:30 AM –10:15 AM at AALS 2018 in San Diego, CA, will discuss

how law school faculty can innovate in the classroom to create future attorneys who are concerned about access to justice and playing a role in solving the access to justice crisis. Each panelist will speak about a recent experiment incorporating access to justice into the law school curriculum. We hope to identify an additional panelist who has (or will in the Fall 2017 semester) integrated access to justice concepts in a first-year or core law school course.

If interested, send a “short (1-2 paragraph) statement of interest and description of your recent or upcoming effort to teach access to justice in the classroom” to colleen.shanahan[at]temple.edu by September 1, 2017. For more information, please see the Call for Panelists.
