My Schedule for the ALSB Annual Meeting

Wednesday-through-Saturday, August 7-10, I'll be attending the annual meeting of the Academy of Legal Studies in Business.  I used to go to the ALSB every year, but since I've been devoting so much of my attention to the writing (and going to so many fiction-related cons instead) I've fallen off recently.  But this year, it's at the Fairmont Copley Plaza in Boston, so I get to go to the whole thing without plane fare.

I'm scheduled for two presentations this time 'round:

Friday, August 9, 10:40 a.m. - noon
Session I4: Pedagogy
Commonwealth Room
Moderator: Stuart Pardau, California State University, Northridge

  • Adding Risk analysis to Legal Courses: More than Liability, It’s a Separate Dimension by Susan Willey and Harold Weston, Georgia State University

  • Collaborative Critical Thinking Exercises for Business Law Students by Lynn Forsythe, Ida Jones and Deborah Kemp, California State University, Fresno

  • Exceptionalism by Kenneth Schneyer, Johnson & Wales University

Professor Schneyer is a published author of science fiction and fantasy, including several stories that involve law, lawyers, or the political process. He will read a 1,600 - word science fiction story in the form of a judicial opinion, inspired by a particular line of philosophical inquiry. Audience members may wish to consider the usefulness of science fiction as a pedagogical tool.

  • Instructional Rubrics: A Tool for Improving Student Writing by Susan Willey and Nancy Mansfield , Georgia State University

Saturday, August 10, 1:30 - 2:50 p.m.
Session L6: Employment/Labor Law
Forum Room
Moderator: Kenneth Schneyer, Johnson & Wales University
