Workshop Theme

Are We Making a Difference?
Developing Outcome Measures to Evaluate the Effectiveness of Law School Efforts to Teach Ethics and Develop Professionalism

The goal of this workshop is to prepare participants to implement one or more measurement methods that can be used either by individual teachers or at the law school level to evaluate the effects of individual curricular programs or the entire law school experience on the capacity for ethical decisionmaking and the formation of a responsible professional identity. For more information see the attached Proposal Submitted at 2010 FutureEd conference held at Harvard Law School.

"The Farmhouse, located in the Inn at Serenbe, serves beloved recipes made with farm-fresh organic ingredients grown just steps away on the Serenbe Farms. Marie Nygren, who founded Serenbe with her husband Steve, and operated it with the family as a bed-and-breakfast before the community developed, has returned to her kitchen in the historic home as proprietress to guide the art of southern cuisine utilizing local products. The weekly-changing, a la carte menu is rich with Southern delicacies straight from Marie’s storied recipe box, prepared in a style that highlights the flavor and nutrients of farm-fresh produce."

**Workshop participants accompanied by guests are responsible for covering the cost of their guests' meals.
