Clinical Writers’ Workshop
September 23, 2017
at NYU School of Law
The Clinical Law Review will hold its annual Clinical Writers’ Workshop on Saturday, September 23, 2017, 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 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 must submit a mini-draft of or 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.
