APPLY BY FEBRUARY 21 FOR SPRING 2011 WORKSHOP ON TEACHING ETHICS
The Spring 2011 workshop of the National Institute for Teaching Ethics and Professionalism (NIFTEP) will take place on Friday, April 29 - Sunday, May 1, 2011 at the University of St. Thomas Gainey Conference Center, one hour south of Minneapolis, MN. Attendance at this highly participatory event is limited to invited speakers and to those selected to be Spring 2011 NIFTEP Fellows. (Prior NIFTEP Fellows are welcome to apply for this workshop.)
The themes for the Spring 2011 workshop are:
1) What can law teachers and practitioners in one country learn from what is being done in other countries to develop innovative and effective ways of teaching ethics and professionalism?
2) How can teaching ethics and professionalism address practicing law in an increasingly global context?
More information on the workshop and fellowship applications are now available at http://law.gsu.edu/niftep/.
We expect to begin reviewing applications on February 21, 2011, and to make selection decisions by March 11.
Fellowships are typically granted either to full-time law professors who teach legal ethics or to practitioners actively involved in ethics CLE education and professionalism programs. However, any person committed to promoting ethics and professionalism may apply. There is no charge for workshop registration, lodging, or meals during the workshop. A limited number of travel stipends for reimbursement of air fare will be available based on need. Travel stipends will typically only reimburse a portion of air fare expenses.
