    Ethics and Executive Functioning

    Students are leaving law school with an understanding of the law but lacking executive functioning skills such as time management, project management, emotional regulation, and focus. By teaching executive functioning skills through an ethics-based lens, we can explain to students why the development of these skills is important in law school, practice, and life. This train-the-trainer style session will walk you through how to build an engaging and ethics-based presentation that you can take back to your institution.

    Fostering & Assessing Self-Directedness

    Self-directedness (or ownership or initiative) will be a key competency for law school graduates seeking to find success in legal practice. How can law schools do more to foster self-directedness (or stop doing things that discourage self-directedness!)? How can law schools assess the extent to which students are becoming more self-directed? This presentation will discuss a progressive approach to fostering greater self-directedness in law students and provide some insights on ways of assessing self-directedness.

    Faculty Just Don't Understand

    Student Affairs professionals enforce student rules that they sometimes cannot influence. At times, faculty: 1. Do not understand the realities of day-to-day rule administration; 2. Lack knowledge about the system in which new rules operate; 3. Are reluctant to take responsibility or enforce unpopular rules. This discussion is led by two full-time law faculty members who recently served as an academic dean/interim dean and as the dean of students. They will discuss these challenges from all angles and provide an interactive, open, and honest dialogue to share lessons learned and concrete tips for developing a successful working relationship between faculty and other administrators to enhance student success.
