This announcement may be of interest to law school junior faculty and lawyers interested in entering the academy (as well as senior faculty with expertise and interests to share):
LatCrit, Inc. and the Society of American Law Teachers (SALT) are pleased to invite you to the Tenth Annual Junior Faculty Development Workshop (FDW), immediately preceding the SALT Teaching Conference. The conference will be held at the University of Maryland, Francis King Carey School of Law in Baltimore, MD.
This annual workshop is designed for critical, progressive, and social justice oriented pretenure professors, including clinicians and legal writing professors, as well as those who may be contemplating a teaching career. The FDW is designed to familiarize critical, progressive, and social justice oriented junior faculty with LatCrit and SALT principles and values and support them in the scholarship, teaching, and service aspects of professional success.
Sessions at this year's workshop will focus on entering the academy, connecting critical theory and social justice lawyering in the classroom, and developing a flourishing social justice scholarly and teaching agenda. In addition, the workshop will offer a limited number of opportunities for FDW attendees to present mock job talks. And this year, as part of the community building dinner, the FDW will offer an open mic night!
Registration for the FDW (which will take place in conjunction with the SALT Teaching Conference) will open on August 15. You can obtain more information and register here. For more information about the mock job talk opportunity, please email Professor Jonathan Glater or Professor Christopher Hines. To sign up for the open mic night, email Professor Jaime Lee.
