LEGAL EDUCATION FOR A CHANGING SOCIETY
Penn State Law, University Park, Pennsylvania
REGISTER HERE! https://w2.pennstatelaw.psu.edu/forms/salt/
Legal education and practice are evolving. Advances in technology are changing not only what law students learn and how they are taught, but also the role of the attorney within the practice of law. Jurisprudence and rule of law are being challenged in ways they haven’t before. Profound societal changes, stemming from rapid shifts in federal, state, and local policies, require attorneys to be adept at developing innovative legal theories and strategies. Globalization and the demand for interprofessional competencies are transforming all aspects of practice.
We welcome and encourage a variety of session formats. You may submit a proposal as an individual speaker, as a panel, or group; however, panel or group presentations are preferred over individual submissions. Please note that proposals from individuals and small groups will be combined with other presenters. Whatever your topic and format, please use the required format for your proposal. Please email proposals to 2018_SA.email@example.com (view the Call for Proposals for further details).
