Law students are changing. Most are from the "Millennial" and "Next Gen" generations, which approach the world, the use of technology and the idea of collaboration and social interaction differently than previous generations. Students also are coming from increasingly diverse backgrounds, including those for whom English is not a first language and foreign-trained lawyers who are seeking advanced degrees from U.S. and Canadian law schools.

This evolution has implications for the way we reach these students, how we effectively teach them, and how we train them to succeed in today's employment market, which is led by people of different generations with different expectations.

This conference will provide a forum for educators and practitioners to better understand today's evolving law students and to discuss how teachers, employers and students might change in order to keep pace with this evolution but also stay true to legitimate legal discourse and community expectations.

During the workshop, UDM Law Professor Pamela V. Lysaght will receive an award presented by UDM Law Dean Phyllis L. Crocker for her many years of dedicated service to the legal writing community. Linda L. Berger, President of the Legal Writing Institute, will also make special remarks recognizing Professor Lysaght.

Additional details about the Workshop may be found on the UDM Law website here.
