Professors at Western State College of Law, Monica Todd, Eunice Park and Lori Roberts, presented at the Legal Writing Institute’s 17th Biennial Conference in Portland, Oregon, on July 10-13, 2016.
As part of the Social Justice Panel on Client-Centered Advocacy, the professors discussed why cultural competency should be included as a learning outcome in the legal writing curriculum, suggesting how it can be done while including some of the challenges of posing culturally sensitive issues in the classroom and providing ideas for assessment and following up on the results.
