Call-for-Panelists: Innovations in Teaching Access to Justice Across the Law School Curriculum — 2018 AALS Annual Meeting – Open Source Program, Friday, January 5, 2018, 8:30 – 10:15 a.m.
We invite applications to speak on a panel about how law school faculty can
innovate in the classroom to create future attorneys who are concerned about access to
justice and playing a role in solving the access to justice crisis. Each panelist will speak
about a recent experiment incorporating access to justice into the law school curriculum.
We hope to identify an additional panelist who has (or will in the Fall 2017 semester)
integrated access to justice concepts in a first-year or core law school course.
The program will begin with a roundtable discussion of each panelist’s recent
efforts to highlight and incorporate access to justice in their own classrooms. The
program will continue with a facilitated discussion that will allow audience members to
share and develop their own classroom experiments, including ideas to incorporate access to justice in core and first-year courses. The planned panelists are Anna Carpenter
(Tulsa), Lauren Sudeall Lucas (Georgia State), Victor Quintanilla (Indiana), and Colleen
To be considered as a panelist, please email a short (1-2 paragraph) statement of
interest and description of your recent or upcoming effort to teach access to justice in the
classroom to Colleen Shanahan (email@example.com) by September 1.
