Go On! Intlaw teaching

(Go On! is an occasional item on symposia and other events of interest)

"Teaching International Law Beyond the Classroom: Engaging Students in Experiential Learning, in Webpages and Blogs, and in Historical and Empirical Research" is the topic of a conference to be held on Friday, May 6, at Pace Law School in White Plains, New York. Cosponsors are the Teaching International Law Interest Group of the American Society of International Law and the American Branch of the International Law Association.
Co-chairing the event are IntLawGrrl guest/alumna Cindy Galway Buys (Southern Illinois) and Thomas McDonnell (Pace). Through the conference they aim
to raise awareness on different modalities of teaching and researching in the area of international law to expand beyond the traditional classroom and the standard law review article. Law schools around the country have initiated international law and human rights clinics; International law faculty have increasingly used blogs and the internet to carry out their scholarly work; and the legal academy has begun to recognize the contribution that history and empirical research can make. This workshop explores each of these modalities and attempts to help the participants expand their teaching and research accordingly.

As set forth in full in the program among the many speakers are a number of IntLawGrrl guests/alumnae addition to Cindy: Laura Dickinson (Arizona State), Peggy McGuinness (St. John's), and Beth A. Simmons (Harvard).
