On Friday, December 5, Detroit Mercy 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, Detroit Mercy 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.
