    Dayton Law Selected to Host

    Dayton Law is one of 16 law schools around the U.S. - and the only one in Ohio - selected to host a one-day workshop for new legal writing faculty and law librarians, and persons interested in entering the field. The workshop is part of a national program coordinated by the Legal Writing Institute, a national organization dedicated to improving legal writing education. All workshops will be held throughout the United States on Friday, December 3.

    The workshops are geared toward professors and librarians interested in teaching legal research and writing. The workshop will include sessions on lesson planning, working with students, and teaching strategies for legal writing, research, and citation.

    Dayton Law's Legal Profession Program will coordinate with the Legal Writing Institute to organize the School's workshop. Pre-registration will be available on the Legal Writing Institute website in October.

    We're excited about hosting the LWI Workshop for new legal research and writing teachers, and eager to share our expertise," said Maria Crist, the director of the Legal Profession Program. "Hosting the workshop promotes Dayton's role as a leader in legal research and writing pedagogy. We look forward to welcoming new teachers and anyone thinking about entering the profession."

    In addition to Crist, the Legal Profession Program includes Professors Sheila Miller, Adam Todd, Victoria VanZandt, Susan Wawrose and Julie Zink. In addition to their regular teaching responsibilities, they will be involved in coordinating and presenting sessions during the workshop.

    The workshop is part of a program launched in 2009 by the Legal Writing Institute. The program started with two pilot workshops and is expanding to 16 locations in 2010.
