In an effort to continue the storytelling conversation for this ninth conference, and to welcome new attendees, we are providing resources for those interested in submitting a proposal and who wish to generate ideas or respond to others’.
The first is a list of topics from past conferences
The second is a link to the second Applied Legal Storytelling bibliography, including articles that have emerged from previous storytelling conferences.
Finally, there are also articles included in this Monograph double volume, dedicated to the topic (scroll down to Volumes 10 and 11). We are also happy to answer questions and offer you suggestions - if you are a newcomer and interested in becoming involved, please reach out.
The conference will include 45-minute and 30-minute time slots.
For the 45-minute time slots, we welcome interactive, panel or roundtable presentation proposals, as well as other format types.
For the 30-minute time slots, we envision presenters adopting something like the 14 to 18-minute TED-style format of rehearsed presentations that centre on one idea conveyed through narrative, with reserved time for audience questions.
On the proposal form, please indicate either a preference for a particular format or your willingness that we accept your proposal in any of the formats and time constraints.
We welcome and encourage presentation proposals from faculty, lawmakers, and practitioners engaged in a variety of disciplines and from schools and organizations around the world. Complete the Proposal Form.
We ask for a short summary of fewer than 60 words for use in the conference program, as well as a narrative description of your proposal for selection purposes (500 words maximum).
