Call for Proposals

Deadline: March 14, 2022, 11:59 PM

Thank you for your interest in presenting at Externships 11. We encourage attendance and proposals from externship faculty as well as in-house clinical faculty, deans and associate deans, supervising attorneys, career service professionals and from others interested in both the possibilities and the practical realities of externship courses. We also solicit active participation by international clinicians, higher education consultants, diversity and inclusion specialists, and any others working closely with law schools.

We also seek topics and facilitators to convene affinity groups designed for those attendees who would like to meet with others to discuss common issues. Groups may form according to geographical region, practice area, specific concerns, or specific identities.

We encourage you to propose a topic that will develop the overall conference theme of
Embracing Community: Learning from Each Other, Deepening Local Connections, and Refining Remote Relationships

  • Learning from each other: Sharing new ideas and best practices
  • Deepening local connections: Returning to in person work and re-engaging with our local communities.
  • Refining remote relationships: Exploring the future of remote work and relationships with remote placements.

We will have concurrent sessions (75 minutes) and lightning sessions (30 minutes). The sessions may be individual or panel presentations. The committee welcomes concurrent session proposals that include experiential learning/ community building activities.

We are ready to talk over your ideas as you develop them. We are also ready to help anyone who is new to presenting at conferences or who wants assistance finding possible co-presenters. Feel free to contact any member of the Planning Committee to discuss your ideas as you prepare a proposal.

The conference will be primarily in-person, but will offer a remote option for those unable to attend in-person.
RFPs should be submitted via this Google form.
