Austrlasian Law Teachers Association announced Annual Conference and Call for Papers.
The Conference is being hosted by the ANU College of Law at The Australian National University, Canberra.
29 September 2013 - 1 October 2013.
The theme of this year’s conference explores the proposition that through teaching (and research) we determine the way in which students understand the law and what it is to be a lawyer. The way in which we structure our law school curricula and the individual courses within those curricula shapes how our students conceive of the intellectual and ethical parameters of the law.
The theme of the 2013 ALTA conference invites us to reflect on this gatekeeping role: what responsibilities does it carry? What scope do we have to make distinctive contributions to this role? What role should students play? Is the gatekeeper metaphor accurate?
Deadline for abstracts has been extended to 16 August 2013.
