2011 Educating Advocates: Teaching Advocacy Skills

May 25-27, 2011
Stetson University College of Law
Gulfport, Fla.

Stetson's annual conference Educating Advocates: Teaching Advocacy Skills takes place May 25-27, 2011, on our beautiful Gulfport campus. Attendees will spend three days developing their teaching skills, learning new techniques and networking with some of the most recognized names in advocacy teaching. Attendees will leave with a complete set of tools to empower their students to become better advocates, immediately.

We will be joined this year by vendors from several different companies, including NITA, LEXIS, and WEST. Acquisition editors will be on hand to discuss publishing opportunities with attendees, as well as to showcase their skill specific wares. We will also be taping our conference and teaching demonstrations for inclusion on a teaching skills website that we will be using to showcase some new technology that we are excited about down here.
