Engaging and Assessing Our Students
Welcome to the 2011 ILTL Conference
I want to take this opportunity to welcome you in advance to the Institute for Law Teaching and Learning's 2011 Summer Conference "Engaging and Assessing Our Students" and to provide some information that might be helpful as you make final preparation for your travels.
You can pick up your conference program and materials on Wednesday evening, June 1, between 5:30 a.m. and 8:00 p.m., or on the morning of Thursday, June 2, between 8:00 a.m. and 9:00 a.m.
Overview of the Conference
Starting and finishing all sessions on time is a core ethic of the Institute. Please use your time accordingly. We believe that the extensive list of presentations and topics may make it challenging for you to decide which of many exciting workshops to attend. You may want to take a final look at the conference program in order to finalize your own conference plans before you join us.
New York Law School and event sponsors will be providing breakfast and lunch on both Thursday and Friday, as well as appetizers on Wednesday evening and dinner on Thursday. Your conference materials will also include information about local restaurant options.
New York City can be muggy in June, but temperatures tend to be rather mild — usually ranging from the high 60's to the low 80's.
New York is a walking city, so it will be very helpful to wear comfortable shoes. Otherwise, please dress as you like for the conference, which is generally quite casual.
Please contact me if there's anything I can do to make your conference experience more enjoyable. I'll look forward to seeing you all soon.
