Prof. Amy Stein Presents Twice at 2018 Legal Writing Institute National Conference

Amy R. Stein, Professor of Legal Writing and Assistant Dean for Adjunct Instruction

Professor Amy R. Stein presented twice at the 18th Biennial Legal Writing Institute Conference in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, in mid-July.

Her first presentation, titled “Catch the Wave: Teaching Legal Writing and Skills Online,” dealt with the use of technology in the law school classroom. The presentation was particularly timely in light of the proposed new ABA rules which will increase the number of distance hours students may complete during law school.

Professor Stein’s second presentation, titled “All I Really Need to Know About Law Teaching I Learned in Kindergarten: Why Law Matters,” was a panel discussion on how to impart to students why law matters, based on the Robert Fulghum book All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten.

The Legal Writing Institute is dedicated to improving legal writing by providing a forum for discussion and scholarship about legal writing, analysis and research. With nearly 3,000 members representing 38 countries, it is the second-largest organization of law professors in the United States.
