Hard to believe, but there are less than 30 days until the 2013 Conference for Law School Computing! Elmer has begun to slot in presentations (and still more to come!) And don’t forget, as part of CALIcon, on Saturday, June 15, our host school Chicago-Kent is hosting a symposium on Justice Lawyering and Legal Education in the Digital Age.
There’s still plenty of time to register. Remember, we have a block of hotel rooms reserved at the Palmer House Hilton with a special rate for CALIcon attendees. The rate applies June 11 – 16, if you’d like to extend your visit and have a little vacation in Chicago. This great rate expires on May 21, 2013.
We are also very happy to announce our keynote speakers for this year’s conference.
Josh Clark is the founder of Global Moxie, a mobile technology consulting firm. He specializes in mobile design strategy and user experience. When he’s not building friendly interfaces, he writes about them. In Josh’s books and blog, he explores humane software, clever design and the creative process. Josh is the author of four books, including Tapworthy: Designing Great iPhone Apps (O’Reilly, 2010), all of which aim to help you harness technology to make your work easier, more beautiful, more awesome. Josh is a regular speaker at international technology conferences, sharing his insights about mobile strategy and designing for phones, tablets, and other emerging devices. Additionally, in 1996, he created the uberpopular “Couch-to-5K” (C25K) running program, which has helped millions of skeptical would-be exercisers take up jogging. (His motto is the same for fitness as it is for software user experience: no pain, no pain.)
William Henderson is a Professor of Law and the Val Nolan Faculty Fellow, as well as Director, Center on the Global Legal Profession, at Indiana University’s Maurer School of Law. Inspired by the 2007 Carnegie Report on Legal Education, he co-created a mandatory four hour first year course called “The Legal Profession.” This course uses legal ethics and the law of lawyering as the spine of a course that immerses students in a variety of practice settings and that educates them on the competencies they must develop to succeed in their professional lives. Henderson’s scholarship focuses on empirical analysis of the legal profession and legal education. His published work includes articles in the North Carolina Law Review, Indiana Law Journal, Texas Law Review, Michigan Law Review, and Stanford Law Review. He is also a frequent commentator, author, and lecturer on trends in the legal profession, including patterns of lawyer mobility, the relationship between profitability and associate satisfaction, the economic geography of large law firms, and attrition rates of female and minority attorneys. His work appears frequently in such national publications as The American Lawyer, The Wall Street Journal, ABA Journal, and the National Law Journal.
We’re very excited to see what the speakers have to say about the future of technology and legal education. We hope you are able to join us!
