NIFTEP Workshop Fall 2011

I blogged about the NIFTEP workshop I attended in April, 2011, HERE.   It was a fantastic experience and I highly recommend it to everyone.  The announcement of the Fall workshop is below.

APPLY BY SEPTEMBER 12 FOR FALL 2011 WORKSHOP ON TEACHING ETHICS 

You may access the online application directly by clicking  the following link: http://www.surveymonkey.com/S/NIFTEP-FALL11-APP.

We expect to begin reviewing applications on September 12 and plan to make  selection decisions by September 26. Therefore, applicants are strongly encouraged to submit
their applications by September 12 for the limited  number of fellowships (usually only 14 total).

The Fall 2011 workshop of the National Institute for Teaching Ethics and Professionalism (NIFTEP) will take place on Saturday, November 12 – Monday, November 14, 2011 in Atlanta, Georgia (USA).  The next NIFTEP workshop is planned for June 2012; the theme will be ethical and professionalism issues in criminal law practice.

Attendance at this highly participatory event is limited to invited speakers and to those selected to be Fall 2011 NIFTEP Fellows. (Prior NIFTEP Fellows are welcome to apply for this workshop.) Fellowships are typically granted either to full-time law professors who teach legal ethics or to legal 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.

The themes for the Fall 2011 workshop are:

1)      What do we know – and what should we teach – about how lawyer discipline actually
works?

2)      Improved and innovative collaboration between law schools and disciplinary authorities.

The Fall 2011 workshop is co-sponsored by the American Bar Association Standing Committee on Professionalism and the National Organization of Bar Counsel.

Locations & Schedule:

*Saturday and Sunday sessions will be held at the Inn at Serenbe (www.serenbeinn.com),
approximately 30 minutes south of Atlanta.

*Monday sessions will be held at Georgia State University College of Law (http://law.gsu.edu) in downtown Atlanta as part of a one-day Burge Conference on Law & Ethics, hosted by the W. Lee Burge Chair in Law & Ethics every four years.  The
Burge Conference will be open to Georgia practitioners for CLE credit, as well as GSU faculty and students.

*Preference is given to applicants who indicate they will attend the Monday Burge conference.
