2014 Biennial Conference


The 2014 LWI Biennial Conference will take place at the Philadelphia Marriott Downtown from June 29-July 2, 2014.  Although the venue is new, many of the things that members have loved about our past biennial conferences will remain the same.

First, we hope to provide something for everyone:  presentations geared toward both newer teachers and more “seasoned” veterans; presentations about teaching ideas, scholarship, and career development; and presentations in a variety of formats, including traditional presentations, poster presentations, and coffee presentations.

In an effort to continue to encourage more collaboration between LWI members and academic support professionals, the 2014 Conference will once again include presentations related to academic support.   Accordingly, in addition to the topics mentioned above, we seek proposals for presentations which would be of particular interest to both legal writing and academic support professionals.  

Please consider submitting a conference proposal.  The Program Committee will be accepting proposals between April 29 and June 7, 2013 via a new online proposal form.  You can find details about submitting a proposal in the Call for Proposals and the Proposal Requirements.  We look forward to reading your proposals!

If you have any questions, please contact one of the Program Committee Co-Chairs:  Samantha Moppett at smoppett@suffolk.edu or Kristin Gerdy at gerdyk@law.byu.edu
