Summer 2020 Conference
Effective Instruction in Online and Hybrid Legal Education

June 11-13, 2020

University of Arkansas at Little Rock William H. Bowen School of Law
Little Rock, Arkansas


Conference Theme:  The future of legal education has arrived, with more and more law schools moving toward teaching part or all of their J.D. program online. During this conference, we will explore how law professors can design and implement methods for teaching effectively in online environments, including both synchronous and asynchronous formats. After an opening plenary examining data regarding the effectiveness of online education, the subsequent plenaries and concurrent workshops will address the following topics in the context of online and hybrid courses and programs: course and program design, assessment of student learning, active learning and student engagement, teaching methods, providing feedback, and collaborative learning.

Conference Structure:  The conference will consist of three plenary sessions and a series of concurrent workshops that will take place on Thursday, June 11; Friday, June 12; and the morning of Saturday, June 13. The conference will open with an informal reception on the evening of Wednesday, June 10.

Registration Information:  The conference fee for participants is $285, which includes materials, meals during the conference (three breakfasts and three lunches), and the welcome reception on Wednesday, June 10. The conference fee for presenters is $185. Register here (select "Law School" to register).
