April – November 2014
The Clinical Law Review will hold its next Clinical Writers’ Workshop on
Saturday, September 27, 2014, at NYU Law School.
The Workshop will provide 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 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. By June 30, all applicants will
need to submit a mini-draft or prospectus, 3-5 pages in length, of the
article they intend to present at the workshop. Full drafts of the articles
will be due by September 1, 2014.
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, with their 3-5 page prospectus, by June 30, a proposed budget for
travel and lodging and a brief statement of why the scholarship would be
helpful in supporting their attendance at this conference. The Board will
review all scholarship applications and issue decisions about scholarships
in early July. The scholarships are conditioned upon recipients’ meeting all
requirements for workshop participation, including timely submission of

Vermont Law School will host the Fifth Annual Colloquium on Environmental Scholarship on October 4, 2014. This event offers environmental law scholars the opportunity to present their works-in-progress, to get feedback from their colleagues, and to meet and interact with those who are also teaching and researching in the areas of environmental and natural resources law, or any related specialty areas.
If you are interested in presenting a paper at the Colloquium, please submit a working title and short abstract, using the online form here, no later than June 1, 2014. For an abstract to be eligible for submission, the author must anticipate that the paper will still be at a revisable stage (neither published nor so close to publication that significant changes are not feasible) by the date of the Colloquium. We will do our best to include all interested presenters, and will notify authors about acceptances no later than July 1, 2014.
All selected participants will be required to submit a paper draft no later than September 20, 2014, and all participants will be asked to provide commentary on another participant’s paper draft at the Colloquium. Final papers will also be eligible for publication in the Vermont Journal of Environmental Law.
The Colloquium panels will take place on Saturday, October 4. Vermont Law School’s Environmental Law Center and its faculty will host a cocktail reception the night before in the Hanover area and a dinner on Saturday evening, at Vermont Law School. There will be an optional field trip on Sunday, consisting of a hike in the Upper Valley region, if weather permits. Further Colloquium details regarding the schedule, events, lodging, and transportation will be forthcoming, and will be posted here as available. For those who are unfamiliar with South Royalton’s location, we are approximately 2 hours from Boston by car. The closest airports serviced by major airlines are Burlington, VT, Manchester, NH, and Boston Logan. There is a small local airport in Lebanon, NH with flights to and from the NYC area and Boston Logan, serviced by Cape Air. In addition, there is train service to White River Junction on Amtrak, as well as a luxury bus service from Boston provided by the Dartmouth Coach.
