Faculty participate in legal education conference, to publish scholarship
Marty Peters, professor of legal education, and Don Peters, visiting professor of law, attended a conference titled "Legal Education at the Crossroads: Ideas to Action," held Nov. 2-4 at the University of South Carolina. Approximately 60 law deans, professors, clinical legal educators and legal writing specialists were invited to attend the conference.

Using small and large group discussions, participants developed local, regional and national approaches to implement the recommendations made recently in two books—the Carnegie Report on Legal Education and Best Practices for Legal Education. The discussion emphasized approaches, challenges and obstacles to implementing the recommendations.

Don PetersDon Peters has accepted an offer from the Pepperdine Dispute Resolution Law Journal to publish his recent article, "Just Say No: Minimizing Limited Authority Negotiating in Court-Connected Mediation." The article will appear in the journal's spring 2008 edition, which will be published in late May or early June.
