Deadline Extended: Call for Proposals for Emory’s 6th Biennial Conference on Teaching Transactional Law and Skills

Emory University


Emory’s Center for Transactional Law and Practice is delighted to announce its sixth
biennial conference on the teaching of transactional law and skills. The conference, entitled
“To Teach is to Learn Twice: Fostering Excellence in Transactional Law and Skills
Education,” will be held at Emory Law, beginning at 1:00 p.m. on Friday, June 1, 2018, and
ending at 3:45 p.m. on Saturday, June 2, 2018.

Four New and Different Things about the Conference:

  • Presentation of the inaugural Tina L. Stark Award for Excellence in the Teaching of
    Transactional Law and Skills. Note: For information about how to nominate yourself or
    someone else for this award, please visit
  • New 45-minute “Try-This” time slots for individual presenters to demonstrate in-class
  • Reduced registration fee for new transactional law and skills educators.
  • Reduced registration fee for adjunct professors.


We are accepting proposals immediately, but in no event later than 5 p.m. on Friday, March
30, 2018.

We welcome you to present on any aspect of transactional law and skills education as long as
you view it through the lens of our theme. We expect to receive proposals about theories,
programs, curricula, courses, approaches, methods, and specific assignments or exercises that
foster excellence in transactional law and skills education. In other words, what works best
(excellence in teaching) to achieve particular student outcomes (excellence in learning)? If it’s
true that “to teach is to learn twice,” what wisdom can you impart to others who may want to
replicate or imitate what you are doing? How have you made yourself a better teacher? And
how have you assured that you are achieving the best student outcomes?
