“This year’s conference is all about change – transformational change.  It is time to put the divisiveness of laptops in the classroom behind us. It is time to face our fears. Fear of USNews ranks, fear of the student debt implosion, fear of technology and change itself. It’s time to consider the ideas of Carnegie and decide how technology impacts professionalism and ethics in legal education. What does transformation mean to you and your institution and does technology have a central or supporting role in accomplishing our goals?” – John Mayer

The Keynote Speaker will be Paul Maharq

Some of topics at the conference will be:

  • technology in the classroom
  • distance learning
