LWI promotes these activities through its publications, workshops, specialty conferences, and the national biennial conferences held in even-numbered years.

Prof. Danielle Shelton, professor of law, says, “Drake Law is excited to welcome colleagues from across the country for our one-day workshop. We look forward to exchanging ideas about how best to prepare students to practice law in an ever-changing legal environment.”

The event will showcase topics such as “Writing for Today’s Partners”, “Professionalism and Ethics”, “The Softer Side” and “Hot Topics.”
