LEGAL WRITING INSTITUTE WORKSHOP HELD AT UDM LAW

On Friday, December 5, UDM Law hosted a Legal Writing Institute Workshop with the topic, "Reaching, Teaching, and Employing Today's Evolving Law Student." The event was co-hosted by University of Windsor Faculty of Law.

Law students are changing. Most are from the "Millennial" and "Next Gen" generations, which approach the world, the use of technology, and the idea of collaboration and social interaction differently than previous generations. Students also are coming from increasingly diverse backgrounds, including those for whom English is not a first language and foreign-trained lawyers who are seeking advanced degrees from U.S. and Canadian law schools.

This conference provided a forum for educators and practitioners to better understand today's evolving law students and to discuss how teachers, employers, and students might change in order to keep pace with this evolution but also stay true to legitimate legal discourse and community expectations.

During the workshop, UDM Law Professor Pamela V. Lysaght ('90) received an award presented by UDM Law Dean Phyllis L. Crocker for her many years of dedicated service to the legal writing community.  Linda L. Berger, President of the Legal Writing Institute, made special remarks recognizing Professor Lysaght, also.

Peter and Paul Jesuit Church beginning at 12:00 p.m., followed by a complimentary luncheon in the atrium of the School of Law.  Red Mass is an occasion for judges, lawyers, civic leaders, faculty, staff, and law students of all faiths to pray together at the beginning of the new judicial term, asking God to bless, strengthen, and enlighten us, so that in cooperation and mutual trust we may effectively achieve justice for all.

The Most Reverend George V. Murry, S.J., Ph.D., Bishop of the Diocese of Youngstown, Ohio, will celebrate the Mass.  Hon. Patrick J. Duggan ('58) of the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan will lead the Renewal of the Lawyer's Oath of Commitment.
