Clinical Law Review Writers' Workshop 2023

Clinical Writers’ Workshop

October 14, 2023
at NYU School of Law

The Clinical Law Review will hold its annual Clinical Writers’ Workshop on Saturday, October 14, 2023, 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. To assist those who wish to participate but who need assistance for travel and lodging, we will offer scholarships for travel / lodgings. But our budget for scholarships is very small and, in order to spread the money around to as many recipients as possible, we need to cap the amount at a maximum of $500 per person. Moreover, we have to reserve the scholarships for clinical faculty members who will not receive funding from their schools for conference travel.
