We see legal writing as the tie that binds. Good writing skills mean better analysis, and better analysis translates into higher exam scores, improved bar passage, winning advocates, and successful practitioners. With this in mind, we are restarting Lone Star to provide a forum where those of us engaged in the profession of teaching law can become better at teaching these most critical skills.

Lone Star thus invites presentation proposals in the areas of legal writing, legal research, advocacy, pedagogy, and other related topics. We are interested in hearing from those who teach law, full- or part-time, and anyone interested in teaching law. Sample topics might include techniques to improve legal writing instruction in the 1L legal writing course, but also collaborative efforts among faculty members in areas such as these:

Presentation slots will be in 25- or 50-minute increments. We welcome individual presenters, co-presenters, and panels. Please submit your proposal using this form. The deadline for proposals is February 10, 2023. We will let presenters know no later than February 13, 2023, whether their proposal has been accepted.
