Clinical Law Review

Clinical Law Review Writers' Workshop 2014

Clinical Writers’ Workshop

September 27, 2014
at NYU School of Law

The Clinical Law Review will hold its annual Clinical Writers’ Workshop on Saturday, September 27, 2014, at NYU Law School.

The Clinical Law Review Writers’ Workshop provides an opportunity for clinical teachers who are writing about any subject (clinical pedagogy, substantive law, interdisciplinary analysis, empirical work, etc.) to meet with other clinicians writing on related topics to discuss their works-in-progress and brainstorm ideas for further development of their articles.  Attendees will meet in small groups organized (to the extent possible) by the subject matter in which they are writing.  Each group will “workshop” the draft of each member of the group.

Participation in the Clinical Law Review’s Workshop requires the submission of a paper because the workshop takes the form of small group sessions in which all members of the group comment on each other’s manuscripts. 

As in the previous Clinical Law Review Workshops, participants will not have to pay an admission or registration fee but participants will have to arrange and pay for their own travel and lodging. To assist those who wish to participate but who need assistance for travel and lodging, NYU Law School has committed to provide 10 scholarships of up to $750 per person to help pay for travel and lodging. The scholarships are designed for those clinical faculty who receive little or no travel support from their law schools and who otherwise would not be able to attend this conference without scholarship support.  Applicants for scholarships will be asked to submit a prospectus for the article they will workshop, a proposed budget for travel and lodging, and a brief statement of why the scholarship would be helpful in supporting their attendance at the Workshop.

June 30, 2014: Deadline for Registration and Scholarship Application

To register for the Workshop without seeking a scholarship, please fill out and submit the Registration Form along with a mini-draft or prospectus, roughly 3-5 pages in length, of the article you intend to present at the Workshop.

To register and also seek a scholarship, please fill out and submit the Registration Form with Request for Scholarship Assistance, along with a proposed budget for travel and lodging, a brief statement of why the scholarship would be helpful in supporting your attendance of the Workshop, and a mini-draft or prospectus, of roughly 3-5 pages in length, of the article you intend to present at the Workshop.

The mini-draft or prospectus of the article should contain the tentative title of the article and a short description of the main point or points contemplated by the article.

Blocks of rooms have been reserved at an NYU discounted rate for Friday, September 26, and Saturday, September 27, at Club Quarters, Wall Street and Midtown locations.  To reserve a room and qualify for the NYU discount, you must reserve the room by August 26, 2014. 

September 1, 2014: Deadline for Submitting a Draft Manuscript

All participants must submit a draft article by this date.  Submissions will be circulated to every member of the small group to which the participant has been assigned.  The award of the scholarship will be conditioned upon the submission of a substantially completed draft by this date.
