Texas A&M University School of Law Professor Cynthia Alkon co-organized and participated in a discussion group titled, "Conversations on the Warren Court’s Impact on Criminal Justice," at the Southeastern Association of Law Schools Annual Conference (SEALS), Fort Lauderdale, Florida in August.
The Southeastern Association of Law Schools (SEALS), a regional association of law schools, hosts an annual meeting that is held in late summer. A highlight of the meeting is the New Scholars Workshop which offers newer faculty the opportunity to present a work in progress, and to receive feedback from assigned mentors and audience participants.
The meeting also offers legal educator panels and discussion groups that focus on pedagogy; thus offering law professors an opportunity to enhance their classroom teaching.
Finally, it provides numerous panels and discussion groups of a host of cutting-edge topics that will prove important for both scholarly works and teaching covering the breadth of legal issues. Because the meeting attracts scholars from all over the U.S., indeed from around the world, the discussions can be lively and intense.
